GOAL Jersey Day came to KMK Metals Recycling Ltd. a week early today, as it was brought forward to coincide with the Irish rugby team’s crunch World Cup match against Russia.
Staff were offered the opportunity to take an extended break from work to watch the Ireland versus Russia match in the canteen, with snacks and drinks provided. To take part, everyone was asked to wear a jersey of any kind and make a donation to the GOAL fund, which amounted to €280. This was topped up to €350 with a donation from KMK 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. This year GOAL Jersey Day is scheduled to take place next week on 11th October 2019, so there is still time to get involved.
Max Kyck, KMK’s General Manager, commented: “Today seemed like the perfect day to hold our GOAL Jersey Day, with a must-win World Cup rugby match for Ireland also taking place during working hours. We were delighted to support Joe Schmidt’s boys in green and a wonderful charity like GOAL, who aid vulnerable communities across 13 countries. With a final score of 35-0 we thought it was only fitting to round our donation up to €350.”
