Pierse Motors in Tipperary Town helped raise a huge €10,000 for Our Lady’s Hospital Crumlin with the SEAT Ireland ‘Fix Crumlin’ campaign.

The total comes at the end of a 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.

Gary Pierse, Pierse Motors, said: “We are very happy with the response 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”.
