LIMERICK’S Live 95FM listeners have raised €87,464 for Limerick kids through the charity fundraiser, the 95 Stop Tour.

Over €400,000 has now been raised for the Children’s Ark in the University Hospital and CARI Limerick, which helps children affected by sexual abuse, over the six years of the event.

“Limerick’s Live 95FM are delighted to be involved with these fantastic causes and to have helped in raising vital funds again this year. We are overwhelmed by the support from the listeners of Limerick and would like to thank them again for their enormous generosity. We simply would not have been able to raise this amount of money without them,” said Suzanne O’Brien, ’95 Stop Tour co-ordinator.

The Live 95FM team embarked on a tour of Limerick in September, visiting all the communities and organisations who helped to raise money for the chosen charities.

Communities, businesses and schools across Limerick held fundraising events that ranged from coffee mornings, fun cycles, Living in a Window and family fun days, all in aid of the ‘95 Stop Tour’ for Limerick Kids.

Another highlight was sales and marketing manager Fergal Deegan’s fundraising cycle to Kilkee which raised €13,000 alone.
