Applegreen’s two year partnership with Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin across 2014 and 2015 raised a total of €379,752, which went directly towards the upgrade of two x-ray rooms in the Radiology Department.
The digital x-ray machines contribute to faster treatment of young patients and superior quality images for doctors for diagnosis, which leads to less time required in the x-ray department.
The funds were mostly raised through Applegreen’s 1 cent campaign, in which one cent from every shop and fuel transaction was automatically donated to the charity fund, with no additional cost to the customer. Funds were also donated through counter top boxes placed in all Applegreen stores nationwide, and from a large number of store and Head Office charity events.
Joe Barrett, Chief Operations Officer of Applegreen commented, “We are delighted to see that all our hard work has paid off, supporting Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin for the past two years.
“We hope and believe we have made a difference to the patients, families and staff at the Radiology Department. Our charity lies close to the hearts of all of us who work in Applegreen and I would like to thank the staff for always going the extra mile to support the fund’’.
