A huge thank you to everyone that donated to, joined in with and supported our 2022 charity fundraiser. We are very grateful for your support.

This cause means a lot to our team and to have hit the target of raising €10,000 for the Irish Kidney association is the best way to round off the year. 

Thank you all.


This November marks one year since our colleague and friend John Egan received his life-changing kidney transplant. To celebrate his recovery and raise awareness of Kidney Disease in Ireland, the Solas IT Recruitment team would like to invite you to join us in raising funds for the Irish Kidney Association.  We're on a mission to raise €10,000 for the charity by the end of November.  Will you join us?

Here's how you can get involved - 

Join our virtual walking challenge and walk 123km in the month of November. 

123km is the distance from our Athlone office (where John is based) to our Dublin office. To join the Solas IT team in this challenge you only need to walk 4km each day in November.  𝐋𝐞𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐧𝐞𝐭𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤 𝐤𝐧𝐨𝐰 𝐲𝐨𝐮'𝐫𝐞 𝐣𝐨𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐬 𝐈𝐓 𝐜𝐡𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐞 𝐛𝐲 𝐮𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐡𝐚𝐬𝐡𝐭𝐚𝐠𝐬 #𝐒𝐨𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐈𝐓𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐞 𝐚𝐧𝐝 #𝟏𝟐𝟑𝐤𝐦𝐓𝐨𝐀𝐭𝐡𝐥𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐨𝐧 𝐋𝐢𝐧𝐤𝐞𝐝𝐈𝐧 and sharing the link to our Just Giving page so they can donate to support you.

Why We're Supporting The Irish Kidney Association

After being ill for several years, our colleague John underwent a kidney transplant last year. We are very grateful for the support and care he received. John is the definition of a ‘trouper’ and was even tweeting from his hospital bed to encourage others to consider becoming organ donors!

The Irish Kidney Association is dedicated to meeting the needs of kidney patients and those likely to be affected by kidney disease. We chose them as our charity of the year as a thank you for the support they gave John and his family.

About Kidney Disease

Kidney disease affects all age groups, both men and women. The reality of kidney disease is that it may impinge on many strands of a person’s life including health, employment, education, social life and relationships, physical fitness and general well-being.
