Maxol Group has presented a cheque for €65,733 to Make-A-Wish Ireland, following its announcement in April 2013 of a two-year partnership with the charity.

The aim of the partnership is to support the charitable work of Make-A-Wish Ireland in granting wishes to children between the ages of 3 and 17 years who are living with life threatening medical conditions.

The agreement included the provision of Make-A-Wish collection boxes in over 160 Maxol service stations throughout Ireland. In addition to collection boxes, money was also raised through a ’wash for wishes’ car wash campaign and coffee promotion where a percentage of sales went directly to Make-A-Wish. Maxol retailers also showed support by selling Make-A-Wish merchandise in-store.

Maxol Group brand development manager Fergal Harrington presented the cheque to Make-A-Wish Ireland chief executive, Susan O’Dwyer. She said “Make-A-Wish Ireland is delighted with the support by the Maxol Group and its customers over the past year and a half. Maxol retailers and their regional managers have done a great job promoting Make-A-Wish in store. Money raised will help us grant more wishes to children all over Ireland battling life threatening medical conditions”.
