Nestle-70-000-for-Down-Syndrome-Ireland

Dublin Based Company Aims To Raise €70,000 for Down Syndrome Ireland

We love hearing about fantastic fundraising efforts like this. 700 employees from Nestlé Ireland, based in Citywest and Limerick, have committed to raise €70,000 for Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI) in a new two year staff Charity of the Year partnership.

The funds rasied will benefit the services and supports provided by DSI for those with Down syndrome and their families. DSI supports over 3,500 members across Ireland through its specialist services in healthcare, education, early development, speech and language therapy and independence.

These funds will go towards a new Multi-Sensory and Family Room in Down Syndrome Ireland’s national support office in Ballymount, Dublin. This will provide a drop-in respite space available for family members and an area to relax when visiting Dublin for hospital appointments. The much needed funds will also contribute to services such as the Home Teacher Programme, Speech & Language Therapy and New Parent Support in the Limerick branch.

Mary Doherty, President of Down Syndrome Ireland said, “Our charity is the voice of people with Down syndrome and their families throughout Ireland. Each year we need to raise 95 percent of our 3 million euro costs to enable us to continue to provide services to our members across Ireland. This partnership will make a significant contribution to helping us to maintain our essential services. Many thanks to Nestlé and to all their staff for committing to raise these much needed funds for Down Syndrome Ireland.” 

The two sites are planning a wide range of fundraising initiatives for the duration of the partnership. 

Well done to all at Nestlé and best of luck with your fundraising!
