The Emerald Garrison
The Emerald Garrison, Ireland's largest independent Star Wars costuming club, announced their charity partnership with Childhood Cancer Foundation in 2015.
With over 110 members, the critically acclaimed and award winning, not for profit organisation which boasts members from both sides of the border, regularly attend events and functions to the delight of the hundreds of thousands of Star Wars fans in Ireland and raises valuable funds for the charity in the process.
Childhood Cancer Foundation events benefit significantly from the presence of the Emerald Garrison members and their ongoing charitable donations have a significant impact on children affected by cancer.
Gaelic Players Association
The Gaelic Players Association is the official representative body for inter-county Gaelic footballers and hurlers. Founded in 1999, the Association’s mission is to invest in a better and more sustainable future for county players, to support them in managing their dual careers, on and off the field. To achieve this, the GPA protects the welfare rights and interests of its members while supporting players through a comprehensive Development Programme. The PDP provides services in the areas of education, career support, personal coaching, counselling, health and wellbeing, benevolent support and leadership programme.
The GPA operates an annual Social Responsibility Programme and established a formal partnership with Childhood Cancer Foundation in 2015 to help support their fight against childhood cancer in Ireland. Players from counties nationwide volunteer their services and work as charity ambassadors both in their local communities and to promote national events.
Opel were announced as official charity partners of Childhood Cancer Foundation in November 2015. The first element of the partnership involved the inclusion of Childhood Cancer Foundation on the GAA/ GPA All Stars Jersey. A percentage of the sale of each jersey was donated to Childhood Cancer Foundation and goes towards supporting children with cancer in Ireland.
Childhood Cancer Foundation were delighted to be chosen as one of the charity partners of BT2 Staff for 2016. Staff carried out a number of fundraising events and raised significant funds for our charity. Thank you to all the colleagues who gave their time to organising these events and to all who donated to support children with cancer.
