Ryanair, Europe’s favourite low fares airline, today (4 Dec) made a €50,000 donation to the UK charity Naomi House & Jacksplace, the latest in a series of charities to receive support from Ryanair’s “Fly to Win” scratchcards.
Ryanair’s €50,000 donation, from the proceeds of the sale of Ryanair scratch cards, is the largest single Ryanair scratchcard donation made in the UK. Ryanair’s scratchcards are very popular with customers who can win prizes of cash, luxury cars, or scoop a cool €1 million – all for a stake of just €2, which funds numerous charity donations across the UK and Europe.
Naomi House & Jacksplace cares for life-limited children, young people and their families from across the South of England, offering respite, emergency, end of life and bereavement care.
Ryanair’s Head of Retail Aoife Greene said:
“Ryanair is delighted to support Naomi House and Jacksplace, which does so much to help children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, and their families. Over the past four years we have seen first-hand the incredible work that they do, and are delighted to partner with them again as one of our preferred charities for 2018. The hospice is one of many charities across Europe to receive ongoing donations from Ryanair’s scratchcards, where customers can win some fantastic prizes while helping out many great causes.”
Naomi House & Jacksplace Head of Fundraising Paul Morgan said:
“Ryanair have supported us for some years but the enormity of this most recent donation really came out of the blue. Everyone at the hospices are talking about it and we are extremely grateful to Ryanair for this serious boost to our fundraising efforts and ability to offer care on good days, difficult days and last days.”
