WOODIE’S in Manor West Retail Park, Tralee has launched its 2016 Heroes Campaign, as part of a nationwide campaign to raise much needed funds for Ireland’s major children’s charities.

Each Saturday for the month of August, Woodie’s employees in Manor West Retail Park Tralee will team-up and take turns cycling on static bicycles in-store to demonstrate the proactive enthusiasm they share for reaching their fund-raising goal.

Donation buckets will be made available for customers who would like to show their support in the store. In partnership with Make a Wish Ireland along with Temple Street Children’s Hospital, Jack and Jill and Irish Autism Action, Woodie’s hopes to raise €200,000 over four weeks.

Customers will also be given the opportunity to donate €1 at the tills to the Woodie’s Heroes campaign.

Woodie’s Heroes will culminate in an All-Ireland cycle ride on August 26th, where two cycling teams will take on the challenge of travelling 1,500km over five days to collect fundraising cheques from each of Woodie’s 36 stores nationwide. Bryan Enright will be representing the Tralee store again this year.

Tadhg O’Regan, Store Manager, Woodie’s Tralee also commented: “We are excited to get started on 2016’s campaign and reach our fund raising goal. It’s an honour to work with our chosen charity partners and we take pride in helping them to continue providing their invaluable resources to children across the country.”
