Topaz has made a total donation of €360,000 to its charity partner Aware.

Over the past three years the fuel and convenience retailer has exceeded its charity targets by pledging the sum to the voluntary organisation which works to provide support, education and information services to people impacted by depression.

The funding for the partnership stemmed from a number of areas, including forecourt fundraisers across the company’s service stations, charity fun days, corporate events,  the Play or Park loyalty programme and also Aware’s national events such as the Aware Christmas Run which Topaz staff have taken part in over the past three years.

The total of €360,000 which has been raised over the past three years has exceeded the targets set by both organisations when the partnership was first announced in 2012.

The funding has been crucial for Aware in maintaining and developing its depression and related-mood disorder support services over the past three years.

According to Aware CEO Dominic Layden, the support from Topaz has given the organisation great growth opportunities over the past number of years when their support to Irish communities has been needed more than ever.

Gillian McGowran, marketing manager of Topaz Energy said the group was “privileged to have been a supporter” of “the great work of Aware”. She also thanked the “hugely supportive” Topaz staff who made meeting the target a reality.
