STORE staff at one Limerick business are celebrating after raising over €8,000 for four charities.

Colleagues at Limerick’s Woodie’s store, based at the Ennis Road Retail Centre, raised €8,215 for the Woodie’s Heroes Campaign, with money raised going towards ISPCC Childline, Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland, Down Syndrome Ireland, and Make-A-Wish Ireland.

With help from customers, staff and suppliers, the Ennis Road store raised the money during the ninth annual Woodie’s Heroes campaign.

Woodie’s Heroes was established in 2015 and has raised over €3million for Irish children’s charities, with this year’s fundraising expecting to see that figure grow closer to €3.5million.

Customers donated throughout the campaign by adding a donation in-store at the till, online at, or by text.
