Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Ireland has announced a new sponsorship with the Marie Keating Foundation. They have donated a new Volkswagen Caddy Maxi van to the organisation. The Marie Keating Foundation raises much needed funds for Cancer Awareness and information in Ireland. Their work is carried out through a number of channels including the Marie Keating mobile units which travel countrywide staffed with registered nurses providing cancer information to men and women of all ages and the schools program which reaches students in the senior cycle of secondary schools making them aware of the importance of prevention and early detection of cancer. The organisation also runs a hospital oncology waiting room refurbishment program and administrates a comfort fund for people experiencing financial difficulty during their cancer treatment.
Commenting on the announcement, Niall Philips, Head of Sales and Marketing, Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles said, “We are delighted to support the Marie Keating foundation as we recognise the vital work that they carry out everyday around the country. We wish them well in the year ahead and we hope that by providing the Caddy Maxi we can contribute to the work they carry out and provide support o those who need it.” Pictured above are Niall Philips and Linda Keating.
