Pierse Motors Ltd. Tipperary Town helped raise the huge figure of €10,000 for Our Lady’s Hospital Crumlin. Cian O’Brien, Director of SEAT Ireland and Gary Pierse of Pierse Motors are pictured with the cheque at the annual SEAT conference this weekend, Saturday 24th in Thomand Park.
The total comes at the end of a very successful campaign for the new SEAT Leon, which saw each SEAT dealer attempt to build a space rocket in their showroom, with the help of customers. Thousands of toy building blocks where mailed to homes across the country with a message asking the public to call into their local SEAT dealer, add their toy brick to the SEAT rocket in the showroom and in return a donation was made to the Children’s Medical and Research Foundation at Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.
Speaking about the great result Gary Pierse from Pierse Motors said “We are very happy with the response of this campaign and thrilled that all our customers and friends received their building blocks and returned them to us. Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin is such a worthy cause so to be part of the campaign is brilliant”.
Johann Fox Corporate Fundraising Manager at Our Lady’s Hospital Crumlin also said “It’s great to have support from a nationwide network like the SEAT dealers throughout Ireland. Children from all over Ireland use the facilities at Crumlin and we feel they deserve the best we can give them. This money will be put to such good use and we would like to thank everyone who has taken part”.
Cian O’Brien, Director SEAT Ireland said “We are delighted with the success of this campaign and would like to thank the SEAT customers all over the country that helped us raise this money for such a fantastic cause”.
