Woodie’s Tralee raise €4,510.00 for Woodie’s Heroes campaign
€340,000 raised nationwide smashing fundraising target
In aid of Down Syndrome Ireland, Cystic Fibrosis Ireland, Autism Assistance Dogs, and ISPCC Childline
 

An impressive €4,510.00 was raised by Woodie’s Tralee,  during the sixth annual Woodie’s Heroes campaign thanks to the generous donations of the customers, colleagues and suppliers of the DIY, Home and Garden store this summer, all in aid of four Irish charities: Down Syndrome Ireland, Cystic Fibrosis Ireland, Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland, and ISPCC Childline. This year, the campaign asked the public to help Woodie’s cover 384,400km by counting their steps – the distance from the Earth to the Moon – and it is safe to say they went to infinity and beyond, raising an impressive €340,000 so far nationwide. This means a whopping €1.84 million, has been raised by Woodie’s in the last six years. Donations will continue to roll in up to the end of September.
Covid-19 has presented many challenges for everyone especially charities as so many fundraising events were curtailed or cancelled. With the goal of making a real and enduring difference to four children’s charities at this difficult t
