GOAL Jersey day was a little different this year at KMK Metals Recycling, with many staff working from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, yet €285 was still raised for the charity.
Staff members donned their favourite sports jerseys for the day on Friday, October 9th and each made a donation to the GOAL fund, amounting to €185, which was topped up to €285 by KMK Metals Recycling management.
GOAL Jersey Day is the charity’s flagship fundraising campaign, when staff and students in businesses and schools nationwide don their county or club GAA colours, soccer or rugby jerseys, in an effort to raise much needed funds for GOAL.
GOAL delivers a wide range of humanitarian and development programmes, with a focus on systems, partnerships and building resilience.
Max Kyck, KMK Metals Recycling’s General Manager, commented: “It was great to see our staff members continue our tradition of wearing our jerseys to work and digging deep for GOAL. It’s a brilliant charity that needs events like this to keep going, helping vulnerable people all over the world. We even had a couple of people taking part from home.”
