Abtran, the Cork-based Business Process Outsourcing company, is instrumental in supporting this weekend’s spectacular Concert4Cancer show for the Marie Keating Foundation. The Irish company’s staff in Cork and Sligo have volunteered to take donations during and after the concert which will air on Virgin Media One this Friday 27th August (9pm – 11pm).

Presented by Ronan Keating and Anna Daly, Concert4Cancer hosts a stellar line-up of Irish and UK talent including Ed Sheeran, Gary Barlow, Riptide Movement, Aslan, Anne-Marie, Johnny Logan, Mike Denver, Emma Langford and the Mount Sion Choir, Saint Sister, Soda Blonde, Tebi Rex, Curtis Walsh, Mick Flannery and Susan O’Neill, Tolu Makay and Felispeaks plus other guest stars with details available online mariekeating.ie/concert4cancer/

I’m so proud to work for a company that is supporting this great cause which has been supporting individuals, families and communities for over two decades.
