We really are a sound bunch!
Even though it has been a tough year for so many, in times of darkness many communities around Ireland have focused on bringing light to their towns and cities.
New research from Cadbury Ireland shows a whopping 98% of us have helped others in the last year.
That includes people calling to check on a family member or friend or an elderly neighbour, to doing the food shopping for someone cocooning.
This past year has felt so isolating at times, but we've continued to be a friendly bunch on the streets of Ireland with 79% of us often say hello to strangers while passing.
88% would happily put a skill to good use to benefit someone in need with 78% of us supporting local businesses where possible since the beginning of Covid-19.
All of this leads to 81% of us feeling that Ireland has a good sense of community.
What better way to celebrate our community heroes than with the launch of Cadbury Dairymilk Soundtown 2021 on Weekend Breakfast with Alison Curtis.
Your community spirit has never been stronger, and now we want to hear all about your Community Champions, the people who make your town a sound place to live.

S O U N D
Surprising - It’s the small, surprising gestures that sometimes have the most heart.
Optimism - always seeing the best and looking to make the best of the world for others.
Unassuming - An unassuming person is amazing but does not go around bragging about it.
Neighbourly - It’s leaving a car space for your neighbour, or cutting their patch of grass when you do your own.
Dependable - You know you can trust your community and they can trust you.
