Generosity lighting up the community

Galway Daily arts Generosity lighting up the community

Two businesses in Galway have come together to light up a prized feature of the community, quite literally in this case.

Peter Curran Electric and Botown came together to supply and fund new LED lighting for the much loved Blue Teapot Theatre Company.

Blue Teapot is a multi award winning theatre company, performing arts school and outreach project for people with intellectual disabilities.

Their home on Munster Avenue was assessed as part of the Green Business Program and a lighting fixture upgraded was deemed as an absolute necessity.

“The difference it’s made on site to the visibility for everyone in Blue Teapot is just incredible and also to lowering the electricity bill, we are just over the moon.”

“We are so grateful to Tommy, David and the westend community for this support,” explained Hillary Kavanagh of Blue Teapot.

This came about after Galways Westend Traders Association’s Lisa Regan approached Pter Curran about donating the materials for the upgrade works.

After he agreed to it, Botown on Dominick Street owner David Fitzpatrick came up trumps with the offer to cover all labour costs for the upgrade works.

“Proper lighting and reducing the environmental and billing output would be a massive help,” explained Lisa Regan of Galways Westend.

“And it has proved the case, small steps do make a big difference, these two Galway local businesses have helped to make a big difference in the lives of everyone at Blue Teapot.”
