The Cadbury Foundation has awarded a STG £5,000 donation to Barretstown, on behalf of Kraft Foods employee, and long-standing Barretstown volunteer, Stephen Hynes.  The Cadbury Foundation rewarded Stephen to celebrate his continued dedication to volunteering.  Stephen has been volunteering at Barretstown since 1999 and remains a firm supporter of the children’s charity organisation. 

Each year The Cadbury Foundation donates STG £750,000 to charities. This year the Cadbury Foundation introduced a scheme to encourage Kraft Foods employees who volunteer to apply for funding. The Cadbury Foundation Volunteer Fund received a remarkable number of applications and selected four employees across the UK and Ireland who were each given STG £5,000 to donate to their charity of choice.

Stephen Hynes, electrician and volunteer, commented, “I am delighted to accept this award from The Cadbury Foundation, and thrilled that I can make this donation to Barretstown. I’ve been volunteering with Barretstown for 12 years and I still remember the first time I went through the gates to the castle, it was an absolute life-changing experience.  Barretstown has given me so much perspective and I’m very thankful for that.”
