McVities Cookies That Care
Nearly two months into the campaign, McVitie’s Cookies That Care is proving to be a summer success but we still need your help to reach our goal of 100 sign ups before the end of the summer! We are only 30 sign ups away so if you haven’t signed up, do it now and grab some friends, get baking, get dunking and get fundraising for MS Ireland! Your cookie event can be anything at all from a traditional cookie-coffee morning to a not so traditional sky-dive with cookies when you land (it’s happening!). So far participants have organised countless cookie-coffee mornings in workplaces, sports clubs and homes, an inter-office bake-off and a cookie-eating contest in a university so if you’re looking for ideas, look no further than our website. Here’s a small pick of our faves so far: Cupan Tae Tea Rooms in Kenmare, Co Kerry very kindly donated €100 to the fund. We’ll be stopping by next time we’re in the area!Nuala Boushel held a cookie-coffee morning at work and thanks to the support of her generous colleagues, raised over €700!Dundalk IT Students held a cookie-eating contest on their campus. They were joined by a few special guests including the Louth and Meath Roses. So whether you want to make a Monday in the office a bit more bearable by having a sponsored five-a-side at lunch or you just want to relax with some friends at a cookie-coffee morning, rest assured you are supporting a good cause and the money you raise will be helping to fund essential local support services for people with MS all across Ireland. We would love you to get involved in whatever way you can, so please log onto www.ms-society.ie or email firstname.lastname@example.org and sign up today. Alternatively, please contact me with any questions you might have.
