Over €76,000 raised in special cOllectiOn fOr Unicef syria appeal A special collection, which took place on board all Aer Lingus flights for one week during the month of August, raised €76,972 for UNICEF Ireland’s Emergency Appeal for the children of Syria. The monies raised will help to support the lives of vulnerable Syrian children in providing life-saving interventions such as safe water, essential vaccines and child protection measures, along with educational support. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their generous support.
On 25 August, a group of 20 Cork based Aer Lingus staff participated in the “Escape from Spike Island Triathlon”, in aid of Marymount Hospice in Cork. The relay event consisted of a 1500m swim, 20km cycle and a 10km run. Thankfully all teams finished the race, but a special word of congratulations goes to cabin crew member Louise O’Shea, who finished third overall in the individual event. Over €18,000 has been raised for this very worthy cause, with all proceeds going directly to The Marymount Hospice. We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all those who participated in the charitable event. A special thank you to our passengers who contributed so generously to the collections that took place on board flights in the week preceding the event.
