Keelings, Ireland’s leading producer and supplier of fresh fruit, has raised €15,556.50 for Dyslexia Association Ireland. Founded in 1972, the Dyslexia Association of Ireland works with people affected by dyslexia, by providing information, offering appropriate support services, engaging in advocacy, and raising awareness of dyslexia.

Dyslexia is a learning difficulty, which affects the capacity for fluent and accurate reading and spelling skills with approximately 10% of the population affected.

Keelings hosted a number of fundraising events throughout 2017 in aid of the charity, which were widely supported by Keelings staff.

David Keeling, CEO of Keelings Retail, said: “We are delighted to have raised funds for ‘Dyslexia Association Ireland’. The DAI are doing a fantastic job for people that live and work with Dyslexia. I would also like to thank the staff at Keelings who got behind each fundraising event and showed great enthusiasm and support.  All proceeds from the fundraising event go to DAI.”

Rosie Bissett, CEO of Dyslexia Association of Ireland, said: “This fantastic result wouldn’t have been possible without the brilliant staff at Keelings. I would like to thank everyone who generously gave up their time and kindly donated to the DAI.”
