Derry customers of independent travel agent, Terra Travel, have helped raise £5,000 for Barnardo’s NI.
Throughout the past year, Derry customers helped to raise the money for the charity by simply booking holidays.
Terra Travel launched its ‘Give a Child a Break’ scheme last September which saw it donate 2.5 percent to Barnardo’s NI from the sale of every holiday booked.
Terra Travel Managing Director Damian Murphy said that he was delighted with the amount of money they were able to donate to Barnardo’s NI and praised the people of Derry for their support.
“We are delighted that our ‘Give a Child a Break’ initiative has raised £5,000 for Barnardo’s NI to date and appreciate the support of our customers, including those from Derry.
“By booking through the scheme our customers have been able to go on holiday knowing they have also helped support local vulnerable and disadvantaged children.
“Terra Travel is committed to continuing its support for Barnardo’s NI and will host a range of new events in aid of the children’s charity over the coming year.”
Leona McEvoy, Business Development Manager, Barnardo’s NI thanked everyone involved for their support and reaffirmed that all of the funds raised through the ‘Give a Child a Break’ initiative will go towards supporting local children.
“We are thrilled that Terra Travel’s ‘Give a Child a Break’ scheme has been such a success and we would like to thank everyone who has supported it.
“The money raised will go directly towards Barnardo’s NI work supporting children locally including young carers, children with disabilities and children who have been bereaved.”
