The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation is an Irish children’s charity that funds and delivers vital in-home nursing, respite support, and end-of-life care for children from birth to six years of age who have highly complex and life-limiting medical conditions. There are currently over 400 children under the care of the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation right across the country and the charity’s mission is to empower parents to care for their child at home, because there is no care like home care for a Jack and Jill child.

Bricks For Care

Commenting on the initiative, Gillian McGowran, Director of Market Development at Circle K Ireland said: “Following our last fundraising initiative for the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation, ‘When you fill, support Jack and Jill’, which raised €105,000 for the charity in June, I’m delighted to announce our latest fundraising campaign ‘Bricks for Care’ today. By donating and recycling any pre-loved LEGO® at a Circle K, not only will the LEGO® go a worthy new home, but all funds raised will support local Jack and Jill families in the community. We look forward to seeing customers arriving to stores with bags full of old LEGO® to support Jack and Jill!”

Carmel Doyle, CEO of the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation added: “We’d like to thank our partners in Circle K for continuing to provide invaluable support for our Jack and Jill families through the latest fundraising initiative, Bricks for Care. The support provided by Circle K and DPD who will transport the LEGO® from participating Circle K stores to Jack and Jill boutiques, allows initiatives like this to run so smoothly, and for us to continue to provide the in-home nursing care our families need. We hope to see many friends of the charity searching behind sofas and in every corner of their homes to find and donate as many LEGO pieces as possible so we can continue to make a positive difference to the lives of the families we care for.”

Circle K ambassador, soccer star and broadcaster Stephanie Roche was at Circle K Stillorgan Road to officially launch the Bricks for Care campaign. Stephanie concluded: “The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation is very close to my heart, and I am delighted to support this brilliant initiative that makes it so easy for the public to support the charity’s important work. From now until the end of October, by simply donating pre-loved LEGO at any of the 22 participating Circle K sites nationwide, you will be supporting the Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation’s work providing care for families all across Ireland who need it most.”
