Applegreen #Euro4Kids In Aid Of The ISPCC- Just €1 Can Help A Vulnerable Child

On Friday August 5th, customers in all of Applegreen’s 104 stores nationwide will be offered a chance to support the ISPCC with an option to add a donation of €1 at the till.  It’s a simple way to make a real difference in the life of a child.

You can find a list of all the participating Applegreen stores here.

Joe Barrett, COO, Applegreen, stated: “We are delighted to support the ISPCC with their continuing work to help vulnerable children in Ireland who need someone to talk to. Our charity work lies close to the hearts of all of us who work in Applegreen and I would like to thank the staff in all our stores always going the extra mile to help with the €1 donation day and indeed all of the charity work we are involved in. You are making a real difference.”

ISPCC Chief Executive Grainia Long stated: “We would like to sincerely thank Applegreen for their ongoing support of the ISPCC and of our important Childline service. I would like to thank the staff for their work on the €1 donation day but also for their work throughout the year. It is greatly appreciated and continues to help us allow children access vital services. Please go to your local Applegreen this Friday and donate just €1!”

Childline is the only 24-hour listening service which seeks to support and empower children and young people in Ireland. Last year, Childline had conversations with over 420,000 children and young people who contacted the service for help and advice with wide-ranging serious issues, including abuse, violence, exploitation, addiction and suicide. That is an astounding 1,150 contacts by children a day, on issues that no child should encounter.

If you cannot make it in to an Applegreen store or would like to donate more than one euro, you can log on to the ISPCC website here.

Any donation can help us make a real difference. As little as €10 will pay for 10 text conversations to our Talk Text service while €300 will sponsor a child’s mentoring visits for one month.
