Thanks to Paula Malone Carty Photography for the photos: Thanks to all your DoneDeal ads, May was our biggest #DoneDealCharityMonth to date! A massive €40,254 is being donated the charity pot and that’s all because of the huge number of ads you DoneDealers placed. THANK YOU SO MUCH! The money has now been shared between: Wexford Disability Services Cottage Autism Network Windmill Therapeutic Training Unit and the Wexford Able-Disabled Club As usual, we invited all the charities down to our office in Wexford to have a chat and hand of this hefty cheque! Speaking at the cheque presentation: Declan Denny of Wexford Disability Services, who said, “The donation will be lodged in the Charities fundraising account. The funds will be used for therapy for MS sufferers and families experiencing financial difficulty with medical needs. There will also be funds donated to a sensory garden for an acquired brain injury unit. Wexford Disability Services would like to thank DoneDeal for considering it as a worthwhile recipient of a donation.” Neil Foley, Administrator of Cottage Autism Network Wexford said, “This donation will be used to help provide summer activities for our children and help to fund much needed respite for our families. It will also help subsidise important Occupational Therapy. We would like to express our sincerest appreciation of such a generous donation. To receive support from DoneDeal is an amazing endorsement of the hard work we put in every day to try and make things better for families affected by Autism.” Joan MacDonald, Head of Unit at the Windmill Therapeutic Training Unit said, “We are hugely grateful for the generous donation from DoneDeal. All monies received through fundraising / donations go directly towards enhancing the person centred programmes of all trainees attending the unit. We are hoping to purchase ipads / tablets for trainee use.” Tony Murphy of Wexford Able-Disabled Club said, “Being a voluntary organisation we rely almost entirely on the generosity of people and companies such as DoneDeal in order for us to carry out our work. The faculty we provide is very unique to Wexford and thanks to DoneDeal we can now plan many more events this year. On behalf of the members we thank DoneDeal most sincerely.”
