Pat McDonnell Paints were delighted to support the Cope Foundation, its Ability@Work programme and the Trigon Hotel Group to launch the “Hands of Hope” initiative in June 2021.
This initiative was launched by Taoiseach Micheál Martin and Lord Mayor of Cork Joe Kavanagh with the aim being to encourage diversity, inclusion and equality in the workplace.
Team members from Trigon Hotels, Cope Foundation and Ability@Work came together and placed their hand prints on the wall which symbolises the uniting of communities.
They are hoping that as people pass the wall on Harley Street they will be reminded of how resilient and courageous they have been over the past year and will continue to be hopeful for the future.
Pat McDonnell Paints sponsored the paint for this mural, while Cork artist, Kevin O’Brien, who is co-founder of Mad About Cork, gave his time to do the design and paint work.
