Junior Chamber International (JCI) Cork and Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre Cork ran an evening of relaxation and yoga at the Himalaya Yoga Valley Centre in Penrose Wharf in aid of the Cork Simon Community.

Himalaya Yoga Valley recently received the 2017 National Friendly Business Award for Community Impact from JCI Ireland. The award recognised the impact the business has made in the local community through its corporate social responsibility initiatives which include Yoga in The Park.

Himalaya Yoga Valley also runs weekly Meditate by Donate classes at its Penrose Wharf Centre on a Saturday morning at 9am and at its Ballincollig Centre on a Sunday morning at 9am in aid of the Cork Simon Community which everybody is welcome to attend.

“Everyone has a role to play in fighting homelessness. Himalaya Yoga Valley Cork have done an excellent job over the years in facilitating people to take an easy and active role in addressing the growing homeless crisis in Cork. As the number of people turning to us for help continues to increase, we welcomed their recent partnership with JCI Cork in hosting another community event in support of our work.

“With conscientious and generous support from the community, we are keeping our doors open around-the-clock, every day of the year for everyone who needs our help,” said Dermot Kavanagh, Director of Cork Simon Community.
