Topaz announces new car raffle to raise funds for the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation

 

New fundraising initiative launched as Topaz celebrates €250,000 raised to date for the children’s foundation

DUBLIN, IRELAND, 2018-Jan-30 — /EPR Retail News/ — Topaz (Circle K Ireland), Ireland’s largest fuel and convenience retailer, has announced the details of a new car raffle that will see much-needed funds raised for its charity partner, the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation. Over a two-month period, customers can pledge their support by purchasing raffle tickets for €5 each and, in turn, will be in with a chance of winning the award winning all-new SEAT Ateca SUV, worth approximately €30,000. All proceeds raised via the raffle will go directly to The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.

Tickets for the car raffle will be available to purchase from sites across the Topaz network and at all 23 SEAT dealerships nationwide from Thursday, 1st February. The initiative aims to fund the provision of thousands of home nursing hours much needed by Jack & Jill children and families. The winner of the raffle will be announced at the end of March and customers are encouraged to keep an eye on the Topaz Energy Facebook pages as well as @topazenergy on Twitter for full details.
€250,000 Milestone

The launch of this initiative coincides with Topaz announcing that it has raised €250,000 to date for the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation, through various fundraising initiatives by Topaz staff and customers, including Small Change for Big Change, TheLEGO® Exchange and Raise a Teacup, along with multiple fundraising events held internally for staff. These campaigns have resulted in the provision of over 15,000 hours of home care nursing to date for the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.
The partnership, launched in 2015, will see Topaz raise €400,000 in vital funds for the children’s foundation, and the winter car raffle will really help to accelerate efforts to reach the target.

The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation, which was founded in 1997, provides direct funding to families of children up to the age of five suffering from severe intellectual and physical developmental delay from brain damage, enabling them to purchase home nursing and respite care. The Jack & Jill model of care puts the family at the centre of the help it gives, and a bespoke package is developed around them.

Judy Glover, Market Director, Topaz (Circle K Ireland) said: “I am delighted to be at Topaz City Avenue today to mark this significant announcement. Not only is this car raffle one of our biggest fundraising drives for the Jack & Jill partnership to date, but we are also celebrating the news that €250,000 has been raised to date across the network in support of this vital charity. Thanks to Topaz staff and customers for their continued support – the funds that have been raised will enable the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation to continue providing invaluable services to families nationwide.
