The Care Trust get on the Road with the All-New Renault Clio
Renault Ireland will partner with Irish charity The Care Trust (TCT) to supply 36 All-New Renault Clios for its series of fundraising lottery draws in 2020. Renault Ireland Brand Ambassador and Today FM Breakfast Show presenter Ian Dempsey was on hand today (23/01/20) to launch the new partnership.
The Care Trust is a non-profit organisation and a registered charity, raising much needed funds for the CRC, Rehab, and the Mater University Hospital since 1974. In 2019, The Care Trust provided €2.15 million to CRC, Rehab and the Mater Hospital from its fundraising efforts. These funds help to ensure that thousands of children and adults with physical, medical or intellectual disabilities, those who are socially disadvantaged and those requiring medical care have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
The Care Trust runs three draws every month, and an All-New Renault Clio must be won in every draw.
In the 30 years since the iconic supermini first went on sale, Clio has become Renault’s bestselling model worldwide, with 15 million Clios finding homes. The fifth generation of Clio arrived with a totally refreshed exterior styling combined with revolutionary interior design, and sets new standards for quality, technology and practicality. It’s also one of the safest cars in its class, as highlighted by its five-star EuroNCAP rating.
Conor Dixon, Renault Ireland: “We’re delighted to partner with The Care Trust, which does such fantastic work through its beneficiaries at the CRC, Rehab and the Mater Hospital. We wish all 36 lucky winners safe and happy driving in their All-New Renault Clios!”
Senan Mullins, Chief Executive, The Care Trust, speaking at today’s launch, said that
“We are very grateful to Renault Ireland for their tremendous support and goodwill and we are looking forward to a great partnership which will offer our Contributors the chance, well 36 chances this year in fact, to win an All-New Renault Clio, along with cash prizes in every draw. Thanks to our generous and loyal Contributors, from all over the country, who make a huge difference to the lives of children and adults in Ireland who depend on the fantastic services provided by CRC, Rehab and the Mater University Hospital
Your generous contributions make a huge difference to the lives of thousands of children and adults living with disabilities and serious illness throughout Ireland. Our ‘Everyone is a Winner’ leaflet shows a little of how the money we raise helps.
