Aryzta Ireland has presented a cheque for €5,000 to Our Lady’s Children Hospital, Crumlin and The National Children’s Research Centre. The funds are the proceeds from Aryzta’s ‘La Petite Boulangerie de Noël’ pop-up which opened for three days in December, the latest in a number of fundraising initiatives undertaken in support of the charity.
Shane Vaughan, head of marketing at Aryzta Ireland, presented the €5,000 cheque to Sarah Joyce, head of corporate for CMRF Crumlin, at the company’s Grange Castle bakery facility in Clondalkin. “Aryzta Ireland is a company that is now increasingly aware of our corporate social responsibility,” Vaughan said, “and we could not be happier about this donation. But we won’t be stopping here. We have plans for more initiatives in 2019 which will make a difference to the people who need charity the most.”
Outlining the work that CMRF Crumlin does, Sarah Joyce said that every year, on average 150,000 children and their families visit Crumlin Children’s Hospital from across the length and breadth of Ireland.
“Thanks to supporters like Aryzta Food Solutions Ireland,” she said, “CMRF Crumlin can support Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital so it can deliver the best possible treatments and facilities to patients, and also ensure that vital research into childhood conditions is funded.”
