Emergency Relief Fund 2020
In 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic rocked the communities that we serve to the core. We responded by launching a industry wide fundraising appeal to meet their essential needs such as food, shelter and emotional support.
Our endeavours introduced us to new partner charities and thanks to the industry wide generosity, we raised €200,000. Collaborating with charities such as Barnardos, Belvedere Youth Club, Camara, Focus Ireland, Good Grub, Limerick Youth Services Centre, and The Peter McVerry Trust, education continued, families were supported and the vulnerable were not forgotten.
Amount Raised: €200,000
Individual Fundraising Fundraising with a collective effort
A rewarding experience
Holding your own fundraising event takes an enormous effort but can be a fun, rewarding experience and make a real difference. We are here to lighten the load and support you every step of the way.
Thanks to longstanding Patron Manulife, we have been fortunate to receive a charity Golden Bib for the John Hancock Boston Marathon for the past few years.

Boston Marathon Appeal 2022

He jumped at the opportunity of a Golden Bib to run Boston on behalf of basis.point. Killian has run a number of marathons notably Dublin Berlin and New York. Boston will be his toughest challenge.
