Maxol, Ireland’s leading privately-owned forecourt and convenience retailer aims to raise €50,000 this Christmas for its charity partner AWARE, which provides support, education and information to people with depression, bipolar disorder and related mood conditions, and to those impacted by these conditions.
Maxol is supporing the charity throughout the Christmas season by donating 10cent to AWARE for every hot beverage sold at its 115 company owned service stations nationwide. The Maxol AWARE partnership aims to promote positive mental health in communities nationwide.
Irish designer and broadcaster Brendan Courtney commented:
AWARE help many of the 450,000 people that are currently living with depression in Ireland. Making the choice to buy a hot drink at Maxol will go a long way for the mental health charity this Christmas. I’m really hopeful that people will get into the spirit of things and take a selfie with their cup for Aware!”.
Caroline Burton, Head of Marketing, The Maxol Group, said:
“Mental health is such an important issue in Irish communities and AWARE listens to the people that need it the most.
