Ryanair Supports Naomi House And Jacksplace
Ryanair, Europe’s only ultra-low cost airline (ULCC), today (3 Oct) made a €10,000 donation to the UK charity Naomi House and Jacksplace, the latest in a long line of charities to receive support from Ryanair’s “Fly to Win” onboard scratchcards.
Ryanair’s Director of Customer Service, Caroline Green, and crew members, Federico Galli, Isotta Maffei, Gaia Cafolla and Brian Gibson, were on hand to present the €10,000 donation to Mark Smith, deputy CEO of Naomi House, which provides valuable care and support to children and young people with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions from across southern England.
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, the GROW Organisation and the Men’s Sheds Association in Ireland, The Meyer Children’s Hospital and L’Aquila Playgrounds in Italy, Fundación Pequeño Deseo in Spain and now Naomi House and Jacksplace in the UK.
Ryanair’s Caroline Green said:
“Ryanair is delighted to support Naomi House and Jacksplace, which does so much to help children and young children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions. The hospice 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.”
Naomi House and Jacksplace Deputy Chief Executicve, Mark Smith said:
“We are delighted to receive this generous donation from Ryanair’s fabulous charity scratchcards. This donation enables us to continue providing valuable care and support to children and young people. With less than 20% of the £7 million we seek to raise annually coming from Government, we are reliant on donations such as this to continue our work.”
