A total of €80,006.36 has been raised by Foróige volunteers, youth workers and young people in a Tesco National Bag Pack which took place on the 13th and 14th September. All funds raised will be spent on youth activities and services in the locality in which it was raised. Foróige CEO Seán Campbell has paid tribute to all those who rolled up their sleeves and got stuck in.
“The success of the bag pack shows there is support in the wider community for the vital services that Foróige provides on the ground. I would like to personally take this opportunity to say a big thank you to each and every person who got involved - all of your hard work, dedication and awe inspiring belief in young people does not go unnoticed.”
Foróige would like to thank Tesco for providing this crucial fundraising initiative. And thank you to the communities who welcomed us and demonstrated their appreciation for all that Foróige does. More good news is that we intend to secure another national bag pack next year!
