At BHP Insurances, we believe in supporting charities and giving back to the community. Charitable giving is very much part of our culture at and rather than focus on one single charity of the year, we prefer to provide ongoing support to many charities and good causes on a monthly basis.
This month, we are supporting Make-A-Wish-Ireland in providing staff members to assist with their annual Wish Band Day on Thursday 16th April 2015.
This is the one day a year that volunteers from all over Ireland come together in streets and shopping centres in the 26 counties, to sell “Wish Bands” – wristbands in four colours – red, blue, white and green. The aim of the day is to raise awareness for the work that Mark-A- Wish Ireland do, and also to raise vital funds to enable them to continue with their mission.
This year Make-A-Wish Ireland hope to recruit over 2,000 volunteers and raise over €100,000!
