Now in its fourth year, the event has raised a whopping €320,000 for the Children’s Ark Unit at the University Hospital Limerick and CARI Limerick. This year, under the umbrella of the Children’s Ark, the Neo-Natal Unit will also benefit from the station’s fundraising efforts.
The Live 95FM team embarked on a ‘95 Stop Tour’ of Limerick city and county in September visiting all the communities and organisations who helped to raise money for their chosen charities.
“Limerick’s Live 95FM are delighted to be involved with these two fantastic charities and to have helped in raising vital funds again this year,” said 95 Stop Tour coordinator Suzanne O’Brien.
“We are overwhelmed by the support from the people of Limerick and would like to thank them again for their enormous generosity. We simply would not have been able to raise this amount of money without them,” she added.
Communities, businesses and schools across Limerick once again this year helped fundraising events that ranged from coffee mornings, fun cycles, bingo nights and skipathons, all in aid of the ‘95 Stop Tour’ for Limerick Kids.
