The Mater Foundation is immensely grateful to the Dublin Airport Authority, who have made an incredible donation of €130,000 to the Mater Foundation from their Charity of the Year initiative.
The Mater Foundation was one of three charities to benefit from their staff’s phenomenal fundraising and with the kind support from their passengers. This takes the total amount raised by daa staff since 2007 to more than €3.4 million, which has been shared amongst 30 charities.
Each year, daa employees select the charities that benefit from the Charity of the Year programme, before embarking on a wide range of fundraising activities over the course of the following twelve months. The fundraising period this time around was extended from 2020 due to the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
These funds be put to work to make a real difference for our patients and their families who attend the hospital each year. From all of us in the Foundation, to all daa staff members and everyone who helped make this incredible total possible…THANK YOU!
