JCDecaux names three partner charities in Republic of Ireland for 2018-2019

JCDecaux have announced that they will once again be working with three partner charities for a two year period, commencing in January. The partner charities for 2018 / 2019 are Alone, Barnardos and Fighting Blindness.

JCDecaux will be donating over €2 million worth of outdoor media space over this 2 year period to support each charity in their efforts to raise awareness and drive fundraising.

Seán Moynihan, Chief Executive of ALONE said “working with JCDecaux, we have a very effective platform to highlight policy issues and raise awareness on the issues facing older people.  We are able to reach older people and encourage them to contact us for support, as well as attract volunteers and support from across the country.”

Commenting on the partnership Fergus Finlay, Chief Executive of Barnardos, said “Barnardos are  delighted to be chosen again as one of the charities to benefit from JCDecaux’s generous support.  This partnership gives us an invaluable opportunity to tell people about our work and the children we support – which we would otherwise be unable to do.

Kevin Whelan, Fighting Blindness CEO said “With this incredible support from JCDecaux we can raise vital awareness of our work to cure, support, empower and reach more people in the community who may be struggling with sight loss and need support.  This partnership will also help us generate much needed funds which is essential in continuing our work.”

Tony O’Flanagan, Marketing Director of JCDecaux said, ‘We are very pleased to be in a position to partner with these three exceptionally worthy charities in 2018/2019.  We are looking forward to using our formats to increase awareness on a national basis of the key issues facing each charity.”
