THE staff at Woodies in Tralee are getting ready for their annual fundraising campaign with a table quiz, a monster prize draw and a soccer tournament among the events planned.

This is the 3rd year in a row that Woodie’s Ireland are raising badly needed funds for Ireland’s most vulnerable children.

Their four charity partners this year are: Make-A-Wish; Temple Street; Jack and Jill and Act for Meningitis.

This is a national campaign, and over the last 2 years, Woodie’s Ireland have raised over €400,000 for Children’s Charities. The Tralee store has raised over €11,000 in the two years.
