Our charities will go head to head on 10 December at our live virtual event with quizmaster Dustin the Turkey asking the questions, for a share in the donation pot. Each donation you make will be automatic entry into the prize draw, so by donating you also have a chance of winning some excellent prizes, which we will be telling you all about on our social pages over the coming days! Don’t forget to include your full name when donating so we can include you in the draw!
How much will the charities receive? That's down to you! Donate here!
Each year, the Chartered Accountants Leinster Society members donate over 900 toys to various childrens charities across Ireland. While we can't do our traditional toy drive this year, we still want to help these charities as much as possible.
This year has been hard on everyone, and our children's charities are feeling the strain more than ever. You, our members, have given so generously to our charities at the Xmas lunch over the years and we know you will help them again!
Every cent of the money we raise here will go to the 5 children's charities below.
