Fingallians busy helping Bumbleance
KIND-HEARTED Fingallians have once again show their generous nature as they came out to support a very worthy cause.
As part of Mothercare’s partnership with BUMBLEANCE, the national children’s ambulance service, the retailer’s store in the Pavilions Shopping Centre host a fundraiser.
The BUBMLEANCE visited the centre and local people had the opportunity to take a look inside the BUMBLEANCE. A total of €1,122.25 was raised in store on the day and Mothercare would lie to thank all of those who donated their money.
BUMBLEANCE is the world’s first fully interactive Children’s National Ambulance Service, specifically designed for and tailored to children. BUMBLEANCE ensures the safe transportation of sick children between their home and paediatric hospitals, hospices, national treatment centres and respite centres nationwide.
They also provide a unique and vital service through their Angel Trips, the final journey a child takes on earth before he or she grows their Angel Wings.
As the charity receives no Government funding, these days are vital to continue helping children across Ireland.
This is the first step in national fundraising campaign that rolls out in 2017.
Customers can currently purchase the BUMBLEANCE bee in all Mothercare stores. 100% of the sale from the bees goes to BUMBLEANCE,
The much-needed funds raised in Swords will help towards a tank of fuel for BUMBLEANCE costing €100; a new tyre for the BUMBLEANCE costing €150; a new ipad for th BUMBLEANCE costing between €300 and €700; or the sponsorship of an Angel Trip costing 400.
