WLR and Waterford Chamber will join forces this Christmas in the hope of raising tens of thousands of Euro for the St. Vincent de Paul in Waterford through our ‘Red to Work’ Campaign.
‘Red to Work’ day is now an annual event in Waterford’s work place calendar with hundreds of businesses and work places encouraging staff to wear red and show support for the annual WLR Christmas Appeal.
This year Waterford Chamber is supporting the event which will take place on Friday December 15th. Waterford Chamber will use its network to reach out to members and encourage them to take part in ‘Red to Work’ as part of the WLR Christmas Appeal and hopefully increase funds raised through the day long event.
WLR Christmas Appeal coordinator Roisin Ferris says "It's great to have Waterford Chamber on board to support the event this year. Like WLR, Waterford Chamber is at the heart of business and supporting the community in Waterford, and through their network, we're confident we can make this the most successful 'Red To Work' day yet."
Waterford Chamber Chief Executive Gerald Hurley says, “Through our close connection with the business community in Waterford, the team at Waterford Chamber believes we can greatly assist WLR in making ‘Red to Work’ a huge flagship fundraiser for the Christmas Appeal. It’s a fun initiative for the business community to take part in, allowing staff to get in the Christmas spirit and, in turn, give back to those who are in need in our community.”
‘Red to Work’ Day is just one of the many events hosted as part of the WLR ‘Be a little Star’ Christmas Appeal which hopes to raise in total over €60k this December for the SVP in Waterford. Other events include a VIP Auction, Farmview Auction, Star Wars Midnight Screening, Care for a Cuppa Coffee Morning and many more. See the full list of events here.
