Irish telecoms and broadband provider, Pure Telecom, announced on Thursday that it fundraised €85,000 for children’s charity Make-A-Wish Ireland.

Make-A-Wish has been Pure Telecom’s chosen charity partner since 2009. Over the years, members of the company’s staff have gone skydiving, held office Olympics and raised money through activities such as cake sales.

Pure Telecom Director Alan McGonnell said: “Make-A-Wish Ireland is a truly incredible organisation. It’s one that we admire greatly, which is why we have worked with them for such a long time. The charity is a source of magic for the children with whom it works; giving them hope and happiness, while allowing them to forget about their medical condition for a while.”

Founded in 1980, Make-A-Wish aims to grant the wishes of children living with life-threatening illnesses and provide respite from the routine of hospitals, doctors and treatment. Since coming to Ireland in 1992, the charity has granted the wishes of more than 1,900 children. Receiving no government funding, it relies entirely on voluntary contributions to continue its work.

Susan O’Dwyer, CEO, Make-A-Wish Ireland, said: “We’re delighted and extremely grateful to the team at Pure Telecom for their incredible support over the last number of years. It is a significant donation and without contributions like this we simply wouldn’t be able to grant the wishes of seriously ill children all over Ireland. It has been fantastic to work with Pure Telecom on this initiative for such a long time, and we encourage companies throughout Ireland to do their bit to support charities whose work they feel passionately about.”
