The raffle was part of its initiative to raise funds for the company’s charity partner
Ireland’s largest fuel and convenience retailer, Circle K (formerly Topaz Energy), has declared Owen Laverty as the winner of its winter car raffle. The scheme was put in place to raise much needed funds for Circle K’s charity partner, The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.
Owen, from Co. Dublin will take to the driving seat of a new SEAT Ateca SUV, worth €30,000. Customers across the Circle K network and at SEAT dealerships nationwide pledged their support, earlier this year to the program by purchasing raffle tickets, with all proceeds raised going directly to the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation.
Judy Glover, Market Director at Circle K Ireland said: “I am delighted to be at Circle K Clonshaugh today to announce Owen as the winner of the winter car raffle. Not only are we thrilled to give the new SEAT Ateca SUV to such a deserving winner, but we are also celebrating the news that €350,000 has been raised to date across the Circle K network in support of The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation. I would like to extend my thanks to Circle K staff and customers for their continued support and for contributions to date.”
Owen said that by partaking in the raffle he had the opportunity to support the invaluable services that the staff at The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation provide to communities nationwide.
Jean Young, Communications Manager at The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation said, “The €350,000 raised to date through our partnership with Circle K is invaluable, with every €16 providing 1-hour home nursing care and respite to one of our families. The lives of the children under the Jack & Jill wing in every corner of Ireland, have greatly benefited from the outstanding fundraising efforts of staff and customers at Circle K sites nationwide. We have also benefited from customers at SEAT dealerships across Ireland for their support towards the Winter Car Raffle.” PWKD06072018
