Jason Green, Group CSR Committee Chair, said: "Charitable work is hugely benefitting to those involved and it can really make a difference and is very rewarding. Following a successful partnership last year, we're looking forward to continuing our relationship with the GAA which does such vital work in the local community, providing support and information."

Chairman of GAA, Barbara Giles, said: "To have been voted Charity of the year once was brilliant, but to be voted again for the second-year running is unbelievable. We do appreciate that there are so many well deserving Charities on the Island, so being voted for again makes this a very special year and we cannot thank Collas Crill and the “MAD” committee enough.”
