Kirby helps to grant children’s wishes with €10,500 donation to Make-A-Wish ® Ireland

Kirby is helping to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions this Christmas with a €10,500 donation to Make-A-Wish as part of the company’s annual Christmas charity donation.

Jimmy Kirby, Kirby Group Managing Director, presented the donation to Make-A-Wish on behalf of Kirby.  Speaking at the presentation, Jimmy Kirby said: “We are proud to support Make-A-Wish, a charity which works so hard at improving the lives of children with life-threatening conditions.  We hope our donation goes some way towards enriching the lives of these children and their families.”

Commenting on the donation, Marjut Ellis from Make-A-Wish said: “On behalf of our wish children, a sincere thank you for this wonderful donation! Every donation is hugely important to Make-A-Wish as we receive no government funding and rely completely on the generosity of companies and individuals to continue granting brave children’s wishes. This gift will make a real difference to Make-A-Wish and help us bring smiles and happy memories to seriously ill children. A wish granted is true magic for a child, providing respite from their normal routines of hospitals, doctors, and treatment. A wish can create moments of joy and memories that last a lifetime.”

Every year Kirby makes a significant contribution to a substantial number of charities. The donation to Make-A-Wish is one of many charity donations which Kirby will make this Christmas.

Since its foundation in 1964, Kirby has embraced the spirit of enterprise in a socially responsible manner.  Each year, Kirby supports a significant number of charities and community initiatives.  Last year, Kirby was presented with a CSR: Best Contribution to the Community Award in recognition of its significant positive impact on the community socially, economically, environmentally and culturally.
