“ISPCC Childline relies on corporate and public donations for over 90 per cent of its funding, to ensure the service is always there for every child and young person in Ireland. Unfortunately, not every house in the country fills with Christmas cheer and excitement. Some children feel anxious, upset, lonely, or afraid. Thankfully, many contact Childline to share their worries and fears. Childline answers over 1,000 contacts every year on Christmas Day from children and young people across Ireland who seek a listening ear. With Ryanair’s support, Childline is there to support them and to give them hope.
This is the third year that Ryanair have chosen ISPCC Childline as their charity partner and we are hugely grateful to Ryanair’s dedicated staff and customers for all of their continued support.”
