Over 160 people including a host of Londis retailers, their family and friends climbed Ireland’s highest mountain, Carrauntoohil in Co. Kerry last weekend in order to raise money and awareness for mental health charity, Pieta House.

Already the retailers have raised a combined total of €60,000 from fundraising but the final figure is expected to be much higher than this.

Londis began its partnership with Pieta House in 2016 when over 30 retailers put their fears aside and undertook parachute jumps for the Londis ‘Jump for Joy’ event last May at The Irish Parachute Club, in Clonbullogue, Co Offaly. The initiative raised over €35,000 for Pieta House.

Following that success, even more Londis retailers and their family and friends got involved this year and a great day was had by all last Saturday despite the challenging climb of Carrauntoohil.

Speaking about the climb, Conor Hayes, Londis sales director said: “Pieta House carries out vital work in communities around the country and that is why so many of our retailers were keen to raise funds and awareness for this fantastic charity.”

Londis also announced that the group has chosen Pieta House as its official charity partner. Londis has pledged to donate 1c to Pieta House on every sale of selected Londis Own Label products.
