LauraLynn – Ireland’s Children’s Hospice was the lucky charity chosen to receive a hamper of Christmas goodies selected from the Mercedes-Benz Christmas Stars 2015 catalogue which they, in turn, were free to use in raising vital revenue to help fund their charitable work.
The presentation was inspired by a ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ gift giveaway competition organised by the Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicle division through its Facebook channel. In it, customers were invited to nominate their charity of choice to whom Mercedes-Benz would present a hamper containing 12 gifts - one for each of the twelve days of Christmas.
The gifts hamper included a ride-on Actros truck, a remote control Mercedes-Benz GLA, men’s and ladies’ watches, key rings and Christmas baubles amongst others. As part of the competition, twelve individual Facebook winners were also awarded a prize each.
Praising LauraLynn for the invaluable work they do, Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicles sales manager Fergus Conheady said “Christmas is an important time for charities. Through this small initiative, Mercedes-Benz delights in supporting LauraLynn and the incredible work they do for the children in their care.”
LauraLynn is Ireland’s only children’s hospice, providing palliative care and support to children with life-limiting conditions and their families, both in their hospice in Leopardstown and in the comfort of a children’s own home through their LauraLynn@HOME programme.
