Airport charity boost

Chief executive of daa, Dalton Philips, with My Canine Companion for Autism champions Laura Sullivan, with Harper, Debbie Keys, with Indie and Carmel Darling, with Walter.

DUBLIN Airport Authority (daa) employees, supported by the company and members of the public, raised a total of €300,000 for its three charity partners last year.  

MS Ireland, Merchant’s Quay Ireland and My Canine Companion for Autism were each presented with a cheque for €100,000 from daa. Staff raised the money for the three charities through a series of events and the company also makes a significant contribution to the fund. 

Members of the public also supported the scheme through collection points throughout the airport for passenger donations.

“I am immensely proud of the continuing support and unwavering passion of daa staff in raising this huge sum of money for charity every year,” said daa chief executive Dalton Philips.

“The €300,000 raised last year will make a real difference to people’s lives.”
