I am delighted to let you know that this year’s chosen charity for DePuy Synthes is Sli Eile.

This charity supports people with mental health difficulties and Sli Eile translates to “a different way”. Traditional support for some mental health difficulties include medication ad hospitalisation. This charity is like a retreat where people live, work and recover at a farm location. They help rear, grow and product their own food and also food for purchase to self-fund the farm.

At the farm people also have support services and an environment is created where people can work through difficulties. One of our employees’ (Teddy) son is a user of the services and he found it so amazing that he nominated this charity. When our employees heard the story from Teddy they were moved to vote for this very hard working and not so well known charity.

We are delighted that you are also supporting this charity.  More information is here for our visitors to come……….

The only guidelines for the visit are that each person needs to wear safety glasses and safety shoes. These will be provided in the meeting room once the attached form has been completed. (Without shoes sizes in advance the process can be time consuming, also if unsure of sizes aim for a size bigger) Other than that we ask that there is no photographs taken and no one touches product. I have some model parts that people can touch and feel for better understanding.
