The Irish Red Cross’ Head of National Services Sandra Stanley has been named as a finalist in the inaugural Irish Women’s Awards which take place tonight.
Sandra is being recognised in the Services to Charity category for her 30 years’ service to the Irish Red Cross. She has served the Irish Red Cross in a number of senior roles including interim Secretary-General and her current role as Head of National Services and Sandra and her fellow role models will gather together this evening to celebrate their achievements at a formal event which will be held in the Crowne Plaza, Dublin Blanchardstown.
A spokesperson for the Irish Women’s Awards 2019 said: “these awards aim to celebrate the power and breadth of talent every woman hides in herself and the hard work of female professionals and entrepreneurs which often remains unappreciated. We are very happy to see the huge engagement of the Irish public who have rowed behind our nomination process wholeheartedly to vote for their favourite female personalities who have worked tirelessly to achieve their goals. We hope these finalists will inspire younger women to follow in their steps and we wish them all the best of luck.”
Sandra Stanley said; “I’m absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted for this award. I’ve been with the Irish Red Cross for over thirty years and during that time I have been privileged to work closely with some of the greatest volunteers in the country. I’ve been proud to have contributed to the development of the Irish Red Cross and its work with communities around Ireland, including the extraordinary life-saving actions of many of our volunteers. It’s an honour to be part of an event recognising the work that women do, particularly in the Irish charity sector.”
