The recent Annual Charity Day organised by laya healthcare raised over €15,000 for charity. The entire laya healthcare team got behind the day, raising a sizeable amount in a matter of hours. The funds raised were matched by the company to bring the total to over €15,000.
This year, laya healthcare is dividing the funds equally between three deserving charities and causes; The Rainbow Club Cork Centre for Children with Autism, Pieta House and Irish Kidney Association Cork. Each of the charities will receive €5219.00 .
Dónal Clancy, MD of laya healthcare, presented the cheques to each of the charity’s representatives at a presentation held in Little Island with the laya healthcare team.
One of main organisers, Kristene Stafford Hunter from Laya healthcare spoke about the success of the charity day and how the team at laya healthcare are delighted to give back, she said: “The team really get behind it and give all they have for the special day. Each year it gets bigger and better. The chosen charities mean different things to different people, but they are all equally as hardworking and the work they do is vitally needed by families, loved ones and friends in Cork and across the country.
“We’re very grateful to have the charities here today to receive the proceeds and put them towards resources and helping people”, she added.
Receiving the cheque for each charity was Karen from The Rainbow Club Cork, Darren from Pieta House and Sheena from Irish Kidney Association Cork.
