Showing we care with a little scare
Reaching the end of the year with Derrycourt generosity, spirit and heart; the Derrycourt head office staff rallied families and friends together to support Childrens Health Ireland‘s Trick or Treat Fundraiser.
Opening doors to Derrycourt families on 28 October, the head offices were bubbling with delight and fright as we held our first family event in many years.
Faithful to our ethos of not cutting corners — #TeamDerrycourt went all out. The team sold raffle tickets, dressed up, decorated and invited Derrycourt kids over for a spooky trick or treat. We were honoured to get the chance to do the right thing for such a great charity.
A whopping €3,945 was raised by #TeamDerrycourt, matched by Derrycourt Senior Management and we were delighted to donate a total of €7,890 to Children’s Health Ireland.
All the money raised is going to aid the sick children at CHI Crumlin, Temple Street, Tallaght and Connolly.
A special mention to the amazing local businesses and partners who contributed to our Raffle prizes:
Bunzl UK and Ireland, Diversey , ICE, Charlestown Shopping Centre, Lloyd’s Pharmacy Finglas, John O’Heaire Mechanical, ALD Automotive , La Mode Hair and Beauty, The Holiday Shop, trusTEA Ireland, Flowers by Bianca and Paula.
