€74,553 raised by Radio Nova’s charity event
Radio Nova has brought in €74,553 for the Focus Ireland charity by running this year’s Radiothon.
Nova CEO Kevin Branigan said, “We are completely blown away by the generosity of our listeners. Raising over €74,000 shows how important this issue is to the average Dubliner. This amount of money will go a long way to changing lives.’
Money was raised from the 45 Applegreen stores based in Wicklow, Dublin, Meath and Kildare, organising collections in store for the two days.
A host of celebrities offered their support to the charity event including, Simon Delaney, celebrity chef Derry Clarke, professional snooker player Ken Doherty, TV3 Presenter Glenda Gilson, Rugby Pundit Brent Pope, comedians Ed Byrne, Kevin McGahern, Fred Cooke and Karl Spain.
Radio Nova and Focus Ireland would like to thank everyone who donated to our most successful Radiothon so far. Over 30 Bord Gáis Energy staff, as part of their ongoing partnership with Focus Ireland, volunteered their time during the course of the two days to ensure we could answer as many calls as possible.
