Ryanair Supports Irish Men’s Sheds Association
Ryanair, Europe’s only ultra-low cost airline (ULCC), today (8 Aug) made a €5,000 donation to the Men’s Sheds Association, from the sale of Ryanair’s “Fly to Win” scratchcards. The Men’s Sheds Association promotes social interaction and well-being of Irish men and there are 135 “sheds” spread across Ireland.
Ryanair’s scratchcards are very popular with passengers who have a chance to win prizes of cash, luxury cars, or to scoop a cool €1 million – all for a stake of just €2, with ongoing charity donations made across Europe, including the Jack & Jill Foundation, The Marie Keating Foundation and the GROW Organisation in Ireland, The Meyer Children’s Hospital and L’Aquila Playgrounds in Italy, Fundación Pequeño Deseo in Spain and now Men’s Sheds Association.
Ryanair’s Robin Kiely said:
“Ryanair is delighted to support the Men’s Sheds Association, which does so much to help men with mental health issues. The association is one of many charities across Europe to receive ongoing donations from our ‘Fly To Win’ scratchcards, where passengers not only have the chance to win some fantastic prizes by playing, but can also help out many great causes.”
Men’s Sheds CEO, John Evoy said:
“We are delighted to receive this donation from Ryanair’s fabulous charity scratchcards. This donation enables Men’s Sheds Association to reach out to many more men in our communites, and make it possible to develop more sheds and create greater awareness of mental health issues in Irish men.”
