CHEQUES totalling more than â‚¬50,000 have been presented to Cari and the Childrenâ€™s Ark unit at the Mid Western Regional Hospital.
The monies were raised through Live 95FMâ€™s Living in a Window for Limerick Kidz campaign which took place last month.
A variety of fundraising events were organised across the city and county and presenter, JP Dillon lived in the window of Brown Thomas for 95 hours as part of the campaign.
â€œNaturally, I am delighted that we managed to raise more money than last year (â‚¬30,000) and, as always, the generosity of Limerick people is amazing,â€ said a delighted JP.
Speaking after JP exited the window of Brown Thomas, chief executive of the radio station, Joe Nash, said the support the project had received was â€œquite incredibleâ€.
â€œThis is a snapshot of what Limerick people are doing every day of the week helping various causes. We have been hugely impressed with the support and of course CARI and the Childrenâ€™s Ark are doing vital work day in day out, so if we can help, we will,â€ he said.
The fundraising efforts of Live 95FM staff, which included a stand-up comedy event at Dolanâ€™s Warehouse, received a major boost when â‚¬10,000 was donated by businessman JP McManus through his charitable foundation.
The Childrenâ€™s Ark unit and Cari were each presented with cheques for just over â‚¬25,000 at the studios of Live 95FM on the Dock Road.
