Woodies stores have launched their seventh annual Woodie’s Heroes campaign which runs until Saturday, August 14 and will support Down Syndrome Ireland, Barnardos, Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland, and ISPCC Childline.

Over the last six years, Woodie’s Heroes has already raised almost €2 million for children’s charities.

Last year, Woodie’s Heroes surpassed its target of €250,000 and raised over €417,000 despite the challenges faced by the communities around Ireland due to Covid-19.

This summer, Woodie’s will build on this success and hope to reach their goal of €500,000 thanks to the generosity of their customers and suppliers, and the support and enthusiasm of Team Woodie’s, including their colleagues in Woodie’s Naas where anybody who gives a donation will be entered into a draw to win a luxury bed.
