At Roomex, we take our responsibility to give back seriously. Give back to our customers, employees, and our community. From this, RoomexGive was born; an ethos to help us make positive changes to the way we work, live and travel.
Whether local or global, using brains or brawn, Roomex proudly supports many community projects and initiatives. RoomexGive empowers employees to pursue the projects that mean the most to them, harnessing their passions and skills to strengthen our communities and make the world a better place. To date, our employees have taken part in Techies for Temple Street, the Focus Ireland Christmas Appeal and Movember, and we hope to expand this list even further!
In July 2022, Roomex donated €500 towards Sigmar Recruitment's Paris2Nice fundraising effort. Paris2Nice is a non-competitive charity cycle that takes place every year in September. The cycle is over 6 days, starting in the French capital and ending in Nice, covering over 700km distance.
Roomex wanted to support Sigmar in their goal to fundraise for Saplings Special School, a special school for children aged 5 to 18 with autism and complex needs in Goresbridge, Co. Kilkenny. You can read more and contribute to their fundraising efforts here.
Techies for Temple Street
In 2019, the Roomex team joined over 1,000 members of the tech community for a unique technology-themed treasure trail and helped Temple Street raise over $270,000, which saw the charity surpass their goal of $1 million over 5 years.
This allowed Temple Street Children's hospital to invest in a mass spectrometer for the hospital, keeping the hospital as up to date with technological advances as possible.

Focus Ireland Christmas Appeal
Roomex has proudly supported Focus Ireland's Christmas Appeal for the last 2 years.
In 2019, we donated over 80 gifts to Focus Ireland, and in 2020 while the gifts couldn't be donated due to COVID-19, we all sent a digital One4All voucher instead so we could continue to provide support in such tough times.
This all in an effort to support the actions of Focus Ireland who are constantly fighting the rising numbers of adults and children who are homeless on our streets.

Every hour 60 men are lost around the world to suicide.
Men are dying too young and together we can help to make a difference. From prostate cancer to testicular cancer, mental health and suicide, the men in our lives need our help. Last November 13 of our employees took part in Movember in an effort to raise money with the goal of helping the men in our lives live longer. As a group not only did we grow moustaches but we also moved over 700km as a group, raising over $3,800!
