- Heroes 2018
2018 marks the fourth year of Woodie’s Heroes fundraising for Irish children’s charities. Each year our colleagues nominate their top four children’s charities and the Woodie’s Heroes campaign gets to work to raise as much as we can. We are proud to be supporting Jack and Jill, Temple Street Foundation, Down Syndrome Ireland and Make-A-Wish Ireland in 2018.
Thanks to the support of our customers, colleagues and supplier partners, we have raised over €750,000 for children in need and funded vital services. 2018 is a milestone year for us as not only is it the Woodie’s 30 Year Anniversary, but we aim to raise another €250,000.
The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation provides home respite care to children with severe brain damage from birth to five years old. They also provide end of life homecare for all children up to the age of five.
Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI) is dedicated to being the primary source of information and support to people with Down syndrome, their families and the professional community, working towards an improved quality of life for our members along with a respect and acceptance of people with Down syndrome as valued members of Irish Society.
At Temple Street our mission is to provide every sick child in Ireland with the highest standard of medical care by ensuring they and their families have immediate access to the best facilities, the finest research and the most compassionate and loving support.
Make-A-Wish Ireland grants wishes to children battling life-threatening illnesses such as cancer and cystic fibrosis. A wish granted is true magic for the child, providing respite from their normal routines of hospitals, doctors and treatment.
