The event saw gar­daí, spe­cial Olympics ath­letes and vol­un­teers sell dough­nuts to raise funds and in­crease aware­ness for Spe­cial Olympics Le­in­ster. Dono­hoe Skoda were de­lighted to spon­sor the ini­tia­tive which was or­gan­ised by the Law En­force­ment Torch Run an or­gan­i­sa­tion that has been in part­ner­ship with Spe­cial Olympics for many years.

Mem­bers of the pub­lic were en­cour­aged to pur­chase a pack of dough­nuts for a great cause and the peo­ple of Wex­ford did not dis­ap­point rais­ing an amaz­ing €3,564.23 for the lo­cal or­gan­i­sa­tion.

Hand­ing over the cheque for Dono­hoes’ con­tri­bu­tion, Brand Man­ager Austin Codd said: ‘The Wex­ford Cops n Donuts event has be­come an an­nual suc­cess help­ing Spe­cial Olympics change the lives of ath­letes with an in­tel­lec­tual dis­abil­ity all over Co. Wex­ford and Ire­land.

Dono­hoe Skoda were de­lighted to work with Spe­cial Olympics Le­in­ster and the lo­cal Gar­daí on this great event as we see the huge ben­e­fits the pro­ceeds made from events like this one have on our lo­cal Spe­cial Olympics Ath­letes across our com­mu­ni­ties on a daily ba­sis.’

Re­gional Fundrais­ing Co­or­di­na­tor Eoin Tre­anor was de­lighted to re­ceive the cheque and thanked Dono­hoe’s Skoda for their sup­port. He also en­cour­aged those look­ing to get in­volved in Spe­cial Olympics Le­in­ster to con­tact him at eoin. tre­anor@spe­ for more in­for­ma­tion.
