AMC Gives Back
Aubrey, along with AMC, has a strong personal commitment to helping the community. So much so that Aubrey was recently awarded a Rehab Person of the year award for his and his company’s support in making a difference to vulnerable peoples lives in the community. As a company, AMC is passionate about corporate social responsibility and AMC has a strong link with a number of charities:
Who We Have Helped
Tiglin’s aim is to provide individuals with an effective and comprehensive solution to life-controlling addiction problems. Tiglin endeavors to help people become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive. Aubrey set up this charity and it has grown greatly since it was first established. Aubrey is now chairman of Tiglin.
Naas Food Bank
Naas food banks puts together food/care packages and distributes them to those in need within our area. ‘AMC donate greatly to this cause’.
No Bucks Cafe
The bus was donated to Tiglin Challenge Ireland in 2009 by ‘AMC and converted to the ‘No bucks’ mobile café. The ‘No bucks’ mobile café is now used to serve people and offer help in any way we can physically, socially, emotionally, or spiritually.
The aims of No Bucks Cafes are:
- To provide food, clothing, blankets, etc for the homeless.
- To build relationships and friendships with people on the streets.
- To provide a safe & welcoming environment for people to share their life stories should they so desire.
- To introduce and make people aware of services available to them in their vicinity, including centers similar to the Tiglin Challenge rehabilitation centres.
- To share the good news of the life of Jesus Christ, with the aim of lifting up those that are downcast.
Thursday nights are a busy and exciting night for staff and volunteers of the Tiglin Challenge. The women at the centre in ‘Teach Shechem’ prepare sandwiches and flasks of tea and coffee for the bus. Our faithful drivers set out on the bus to meet the team of volunteers in Dublin city centre where we take time to prepare for the night ahead. ‘No bucks’ mobile cafe then parks on Marlboro St. opposite the Pro-Cathedral at 8 pm where we usually have our regular customers waiting there for us, who love to come and sit on the ‘party bus’ as they like to call it!
Aubrey recently launched the new ‘No Bucks Cafe’ with RTE presenter Ryan Tubridy at the RTE studios.
DCM – “The Lighthouse”
Aubrey is also the chairman od DCM which runs youth projects in disadvantaged areas of Dublin and provides transitional housing to people in need. They also operate a homeless café in Pearse street which provides meals to those in need each weekday
