Electric Ireland and Payzone to raise funds for children’s charities

Joint fundraising promotion expected to raise €300,000 for children’s charities

Two major companies, Electric Ireland and Payzone, have joined forces to help raise money for three Irish children’s charities.

The joint promotion will mean that when an Electric Ireland customer uses Payzone to pay their bill, a donation of €1 will be made, which will be divided equally between the ISPCC, the OLCHC, and Temple Street Children’s University Hospital.

The initiative began on January 14th, 2013 and will last until April 30th of this year. As much as €300,000 is expected to be raised in total.

Ken McKervey, Electric Ireland’s commercial manager, said that customers would now be able to easily and conveniently support the three charities and pay their bills by using Payzone, whose network is nationwide.

Mr. McKervey said that he was “delighted” to be making the donation “on behalf of customers.”

Payzone managing director, Jim Deignan, commented that Payzone customers had the “added incentive” of supporting children’s charities when paying their bills.
