THE Irish Motor Neurone Disease Association (IMNDA), LauraLynn (Ireland’s Children’s Hospice) and Snowflakes (Autism Support) have been chosen as the Dublin Airport Authority’s (daa) charity partners for 2018.

The daa’s charity initiative started in 2007, and since then its staff and the company, supported by the general public, have raised more than €2.3 million for 21 Irish charities.

Every year, daa staff members nominate a charity partner for the following year. The three charities with the most nominations are deemed elected as the company’s new charity partners. The daa’s staff will raise 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 support the scheme through collection points throughout the airport for passenger donations. The daa Charity of the Year chairperson, Siobhán O’Donnell, said staff have selected another three fantastic Irish charities.  

“Charities are normally selected because the cause resonates deeply with colleagues,” said Ms O’Donnell. 

“IMNDA, LauraLynn and Snowflakes are very worthy causes and we’re looking forward to fundraising as much as we can for them through a wide range of fun and novel events.”

All three charities said they were delighted to have been chosen by the daa for 2018.
