Thanks to your generosity and support, Woodie’s have raised over half a million euro for Irish children’s charities in the last two years and made a real difference to the lives of hundreds of suffering children and their families.
From those who donate, to our colleagues who fundraise, to the charities who provide essential services, to the immensely brave children and their families , you are ALL Woodie’s Heroes! Once again we are hoping to support four incredible charities in 2017.
Everyone in Woodie’s, from our stores across the country to our support office in Dublin, will find creative and fun ways to fundraise over four weeks. Our charity partners were chosen by our colleagues. Have a read about the incredible work that they do and how the money we raise will help their cause. During this campaign we will celebrate all Heroes, big glossy ones and everyday ones. We all know a hero. Help us by letting us know who your hero is! Write it on our ‘Heroes’ wall in every store or post it to our Facebook page!
