Seven Causes to Benefit from Leinster Support this Month
November 24, 2014 12:00 am Richard Blake
In the last month as well as helping out with our two official charity partners, LauraLynn and Special Olympics Leinster, Leinster Rugby also reached out to a number of other charities, schools and clubs to help with various charitable and fundraising activities.
The charities and clubs that Leinster Rugby contributed to last month were:
- ARC Cancer Support
- Johnstown Boys National School
- The Irish Times fundraiser in support of Concern and the Simon Community
- Peter McVerry Trust
- Fundraiser in aid of Blackrock Hospice
- Piercestown National School, Wexford
- St Peters School, Rathgar
Support ranged from a match day mascot to signed merchandise for auction, to match day tickets to Guinness PRO12 and Champions Cup games.
If your club, school or charity is interested in receiving support from Leinster Rugby for a fundraising initiative there is a new online system in place for all requests. Please go to www.leinsterrugby.ie/charitypartners and register your request.
As we receive dozens of requests on a weekly basis, only those successful applicants will be contacted, however you may apply over consecutive months. Please note that if there is time sensitivity to your request to make clear the deadline by which a contribution by Leinster Rugby must be made.
The next batch of successful applicants will be contacted in late December, until then best of luck to all concerned.
