Staff and customers of Maxol Castletroy recently gave their time and money to raise thousands for the charity for sick children
13 January 2016
Times have been busy for Maxol Castletroy in Co. Limerick recently, with a new-look forecourt launch following extensive refurbishment, as well as staff working hard to raise funds for Maxol’s official charity partner the Make-a-Wish foundation in a special day of fun just before Christmas. The store’s staff got out their rolling pins and aprons to rustle up home-baked goods, which they sold in store for the cause.
Generous donations were collected on the day through the sale of the goods as well as tickets for a draw that gave customers the chance to win prizes. In total, €2,300 was raised for the Make-a-Wish foundation.
Tom Duggan of Maxol Castletroy hailed his staff and customers for their contributions to the fundraiser, as did Susan O’Dwyer, chief executive of Make-a-Wish. “We rely entirely on the kindness of the public and companies such as Maxol,” O’Dwyer said. “With their help, we will continue to make a difference in the lives of ill children.”
