Ryanair has today (27th Oct) donated €30,000 to its longstanding charity partner, Naomi House & Jacksplace to support the charity’s work with life limited and life threatened children and young adults, as well as with their families.
Ryanair has proudly worked with Naomi House & Jacksplace through its scratch card programme since 2013, and with the support of its generous customers, has raised over €340,000 for the charity to date.
Always popular among UK customers, Ryanair’s scratch cards give passengers the chance to win amazing prizes including luxury cars and cash prizes as well as a chance to scoop €1M in Ryanair’s annual ‘Win a Mill’ event held at the airline’s HQ in Dublin, Ireland.
Having first launched its charity scratch card programme in 2009, Ryanair has raised a grand total of €1.6m for charities throughout Europe to date.
Ryanair’s Dara Brady, said: “We were delighted to present Naomi House & Jacksplace with this €30,000 donation, which represents the recent contributions of our generous customers both here in the UK and across Europe.
“We truly value our partnership with Naomi House & Jacksplace and our cabin crew are hugely passionate about supporting the incredible work that they do and bringing that awareness to our passengers.
“Through our scratch card programme, Ryanair has contributed over €340,000 to Naomi House and Jacksplace and over €1.6m to charities across Europe and we want to say a huge thank you to all our customers who purchased a charity scratch card on board a Ryanair flight in recent months, as their support helps both Naomi House & Jacksplace and a range of other deserving charities across Europe carry out the work they do every day.”
Commenting on the donation, Paul Morgan from Naomi House & Jacksplace said: “We are delighted with the continued support from the team at Ryanair.
“Since 2013, their generous donations have made a real difference to the children, young adults and families who use our hospices.
“We are always inspired by the dedication, understanding and commitment the Ryanair crew show to our charity.
“Through the scratch-card programme, passengers and staff help us to continue to provide expert medical care to life-limited and life-threatened children and young adults.
“Their support allows us to be there when families need us most. We look forward to the future of this incredible partnership.”
