Maxol’s Cork Retailers raise over €2,000 for Make-A-Wish

The Maxol staff and customers in Clonakilty and Carrigaline have been working hard this month, raising vital funds for the Make-A-Wish charity.

Staff and customers both helped make a difference by collecting generous donations in the forecourt and selling tickets to be in for a chance to win a hamper bursting with goodies.

In addition, all sales made on Maxol’s coffee were added to the Make-A-Wish collection pot and a ‘€5.00 carwash day’ topped it all off, where all donations went to the charity.

In total, everybody involved helped raise over €2,000.

Shane Cantillon, licensee at Maxol Clonakilty and Carrigaline said: “I want to thank each and every person who generously gave up their time and kindly donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“Throughout the course of these events, I felt a great sense of community spirit. These amazing results wouldn’t have been possible without our brilliant Maxol staff and loyal customers”.

Susan O’Dwyer, chief executive of Make-A-Wish add: “As we receive no government funding, we rely entirely on the kindness of the public and companies such as Maxol.

“With Maxol’s help this year, we have continued, and will continue to make a difference in the lives of medically ill children.”
