Supporting Irish Children's Charities
This year we are going to the moon for our charity partners. Our goal is to cover 384,400km. We are asking our colleagues and customers to walk, run or cycle as many kms/steps as they can. You can contribute the steps from your trip and donate in store or online.
We are delighted to be supporting these amazing children's charities.

At Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland, we change the world for children with autism. Our dogs are specially trained to provide safety and companionship, reduce anxiety and suffering, promote independence, and improve coping mechanisms of children with autism who would otherwise live in a very isolated world.
Cystic Fibrosis Ireland seek to improve the treatment and facilities for people with Cystic Fibrosis, supported by fundraising and voluntary contributions. All our fundraising events are cancelled due to COVID-19 at a time when people with CF need us more than ever as a very high risk group from Coronavirus.
