Irish fruit company Keelings has announced its fourth year supporting children's charity ISPCC Childline.
Keelings stated, "Keelings today announced their fourth year supporting children's charity ISPCC Childline, with a donation drive from October 25th to November 15th where 10c from every berry punnet that is sold across Ireland will go towards the charity.
"After what has been a trying 18 months for the nation, and particularly for young children in vulnerable situations, Keelings are delighted to support this much needed cause.
"Speaking at the launch David Keeling, CEO, Keelings Retail, said, 'We are so pleased to be able to support the ISPCC Childline again this year. Keelings are a family run business, and those family values are hugely important to us. The ISPCC Childline services are invaluable to so many with the incredible work that they do so we are really delighted to be able to help them in their fund-raising efforts so that they can continue to deliver these services to children at risk.'
"Andrea Corr, ISPCC Childline Ambassador, added, 'I am delighted to be here today with the ISPCC and Keelings. The past 18 months have been tough on everyone, but children have been severely impacted. In 2020, Childline answered over 225,000 online contacts, calls and texts from children needing to talk. It is so important to continue to raise vital funds so that children can continue to seek out help and advice.'"
Keelings added, "From October 25th, Keelings berry punnets will have a special ISPCC flash reminding customers that 10c of the cost of the punnet will go towards making a difference for children across Ireland.
