MACE raise €100,000 for Down Syndrome Ireland


Ahead of this year’s Tour de Munster cycle event in aid of Down Syndrome Ireland, MACE retailers recently handed over an incredible €100,000 donation to the charity for monies raised over the term of its official partnership. And, with participating MACE stores right around Ireland supporting Down Syndrome Ireland by hosting their own Tour De MACE events in store, it is anticipated that MACE will be making another sizeable contribution to the charity in the coming months. Since officially adopting Down Syndrome Ireland as MACE’s official charity partner in 2017, MACE retailers have engaged in a number of initiatives designed to raise awareness and funds for the worthy charity, including selling exclusive cup-cakes, donations on the sale of certain own-brand products, supporting the Tour de Munster and Purple Run annual events.
