Keelings has raised nearly €22,000 for three separate charities in 2016; The Irish Cancer Society, St Claire’s Ward in Beaumont Hospital hospital and The Ross Nugent Foundation.
It raised the funds through a number of staff activities run throughout the year such as bake sales, a christmas jumper day, and movember.
A special donation was made to St Claire’s Ward as a tribute to a colleague of the staff at Keelings, Rosie Lunney, who tragically passed away this year from the illness.
According to David Keeling CEO Keelings Retail,"We are delighted to make such a wonderful contribution to three charities dedicated to improving the quality of research and care available to cancer patients and their families in Ireland. I am thrilled for the staff and incredibly proud that their efforts generated such a large donation for such an important cause and of course, in honour of our dear colleague Rosie.”
The Irish fresh produce company is a family run business, operating since 1926.
