The airline Ryanair has made a third sizable donation to local hospices for children and young adults, Naomi House and Jacksplace.

The donation comes hot on the heels of two similar donations – totalling more than €20,000 – which were the result of the sale of the airline’s ‘Play to Win’ scratchcards to passengers travelling across Europe.

Ryanair Head of Communications, Robin Kiely, says he’s delighted to offer continued support to Naomi House and Jacksplace:

“They both do so much to help children with life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.

“The hospice is one of many charities across Europe to receive ongoing donations from Ryanair’s scratchcards, where our customers have the chance to win fabulous prizes, while helping out such worthy causes. We send our best wishes to all at Naomi House and Jacksplace.”

Mark Smith is the Deputy Chief Executive at Naomi House and Jacksplace:

“Once again Ryanair have delighted the team at our hospices with an extremely generous donation.

“We are extremely grateful to Ryanair’s staff and customers for the ongoing support they offer the children, young people and families in our care.”

Ryanair’s scratchcards are very popular with passengers who have a chance to win prizes of cash, luxury cars, or to scoop a cool €1 million – all for a stake of just €2, with ongoing charity donations made across Europe.
