Thanks to Mary Browne from Brownes Photography for the photos: July was another great charity month in DoneDeal where the ads you DoneDealers placed raised an amazing €39,641 for three Irish charities #DoneDealCharityMonth. Thanks a million DoneDealers! The three charities last month who received €13,213 each were: ISPCC – Childline Barnardo’s Bray Cancer Support Centre On Tuesday all three charities visited the DoneDeal office for the cheque presentation, speaking at the presentation: Emma Hayden Community Fundraiser for ISPCC Childline, said: “The ISPCC Childline is delighted to have been chosen by the staff in DoneDeal as a beneficiary of their Charity Month. We are also extremely grateful to all the wonderful DoneDealers who placed ads during July to help thousands of children in need of support. It’s so important that our young people have someone to talk to whether it’s a parent, a friend or a trusted adult – we need to let children know that it’s good to speak up.” Frank Phelan from Barnardos said: “Barnardos is delighted to have been chosen as one of the DoneDeal charities of the month for August and the funds received from DoneDeal will be used to support the Barnardos Schools Programme. Barnardos delivers education programmes relevant to CSPE, SPHE and Transition Year students. We believe it is only through the support of socially responsible companies such as DoneDeal that Barnardos can continue our work with vulnerable children all across Ireland.” Conor O’Leary, Outreach Coordinator for Bray Cancer Support Centre said: “As an organisation, we rely on 75% of our funding from fundraising and donations. This donation from DoneDeal.ie is very important to us and for our work in supporting people affected by cancer. These funds will be used to provide a range of services such as counselling and support programmes for children and families affected by cancer in the Wicklow and Dublin areas.”
