It has been a busy couple of weeks here at Collins McNicholas as we count down the days to our 250km Challenge in aid of Pieta House on Friday 28th November 2014 in Athlone. We have hosted a range of mini fundraising events in preparation for the big finale.
There are so many worthy causes to support but we decided to retain the partnership we had last year with Pieta House as our chosen charity. We were all genuinely inspired by our interaction with Pieta House last year and inspired by the thought that the money we raised went towards the opening of Pieta House in Tuam, Co. Galway.
Last year we raised €5,000 and this year we are hoping to beat that amount!!
In advance of our 250km Challenge, we have organised a number of mini fundraising events.
Last week, our Galway office hosted a very successful Monster Table Quiz in An Pucan in Galway. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Quizmaster John Fahey, the management and staff at An Pucan, and all those who took part in the Quiz. A fun-filled evening was had by all!
This morning our Athlone office held a Coffee Morning at their offices in the Inish Carraig Business Centre in Athlone. Thank you to everyone who came along and made the morning a huge success. The cakes were amazing, not to mention the hosts!
Next week, on Tuesday 25th November, our Sligo office will also host a Coffee Morning in Chapters Coffee House in Sligo between 10am and 12pm. Everyone is welcome to attend, please tell your friends and colleagues and pencil it in your diaries – an excellent selection of sweet treats are guaranteed!
Our efforts to raise funds for Pieta House would not be possible without your support. We graciously thank you for all your donations and support of our fundraising events so far. Please spread the good word and help us to beat our fundraising targets in advance of the 250km Challenge on 28th November 2014.
