The Care Trust continues our frontline fundraising activities during the current period of COVID-19 Level 3 restrictions. We are raising much-needed funds for the CRC, Rehab and the Mater Hospital to support services for children and adults living with disabilities in Ireland.
Essential fundraising for Irish charities has been severely limited in recent months. Our fundraisers have now resumed calling to homes in their respective localities. Our teams have been trained and equipped with personal protective equipment (PPE) and will, at all times, comply with government guidelines, including social distancing.
All over Ireland, people continue to help our good causes. We need your support now more than ever. On behalf of the CRC, Rehab and the Mater University Hospital, we thank you for your generosity.
A group of people with disabilities at Rehab Enterprises in Navan, Co Meath are helping to meet the growing demand for personal protective equipment during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Staff at Rehab Enterprises have been producing PPE for years but in recent weeks demand has multiplied.
The Care Trust (TCT), with the support of Renault Ireland, recently handed over two All-New Renault Clios to Pat Qualter of Corrandulla, Co. Galway and Mayo man Eamonn Bourke of Ballina, at JJ Burke Renault in Ballinrobe, Co. Mayo.
Earlier this year, Renault Ireland announced a new partnership with Irish charity The Care Trust to supply 36 All-New Renault Clios for its series of fundraising lottery draws in 2020. The Care Trust runs three draws every month, and an All-New Renault Clio must be won in every draw. The cars were handed over to the two lucky winners following the January lottery draws.
The Care Trust is a non-profit organisation and a registered charity, raising much needed funds for the CRC, Rehab, and the Mater University Hospital since 1974. In 2019, The Care Trust provided €2.15 million to CRC, Rehab and the Mater Hospital from its fundraising efforts. These funds help to ensure that thousands of children and adults with physical, medical or intellectual disabilities, those who are socially disadvantaged and those requiring medical care have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
In the 30 years since the iconic supermini first went on sale, Clio has become Renault’s best-selling model worldwide, with 15 million Clios finding homes. The fifth generation of Clio arrived with a totally refreshed exterior styling combined with revolutionary interior design, and sets new standards for quality, technology and practicality. It’s also one of the safest cars in its class, as highlighted by its five-star EuroNCAP rating and the best-selling car in its class in Ireland in January 2020. Maria Donnelly of Terenure in Dublin was the third winner of an All-New Renault Clio in The Care Trust January draws.
