This weekend, Applegreen customers can make a special €1 donation to Enable Ireland when they make a purchase in-store at the till. The event takes place in all participating Applegreen stores from 25th to 28th November and all proceeds will support Enable Ireland’s services for children and young people with disabilities; children like Harry Cullen.

Harry is 11 and attends Teach Saoirse, Enable Ireland’s purpose-built Respite Centre for children in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary. Applegreen is funding a project in Teach Saoirse to create an accessible outdoor space for children and young people. Harry’s mum Mairead talks about the importance of Respite Services for children like Harry and their families,

We’ve been with Enable Ireland from the start with Harry, and they have been fantastic. We are so lucky to have the respite support. If you have a child with a disability, it is a hard road that you are on and we know there are lots of families in difficult situations. So many other    families don’t have access to respite and it is so important to be able to give families a break.

Applegreen and Enable Ireland launched their partnership in 2020 and since then, Applegreen customers and staff have raised over €155,000 to support Enable Ireland’s disability services.
