LIMERICK, Ireland, November 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa, Limerick has pledged its support for "Living in a Window", an annual project run by Limerick's Live 95FM which raises funds for two worthwhile Limerick children's charities: CARI (Children at Risk in Ireland) and The Children's Ark Unit at the Midwestern Regional Hospital, Dooradoyle.
The staff at the Limerick hotel completed a sponsored treadmill challenge in the lobby area as part of the "Living in a Window" campaign and their own Responsible Business Programme.
During this time, the staff, as well as some loyal leisure centre members and guests, took 30 minute slots throughout the day and completed a workout to help these very worthy charities. The hotel raised over €800, helping to contribute greatly to the success of this now annual event.
The total raised by Live 95FM's "Living in a Window" for Limerick Kidz has breached the €50,000 mark. Donations continued to pour in as the people of Limerick responded to the call to support the Children's Ark and CARI Limerick.
Live 95FM's JP Dillon spent 95 hours living in the window of Brown Thomas while members of the public organised their own fundraising events to contribute to the overall total.
Since 2002, the Radisson Blu Hotel and Spa Limerick has had an active Responsible Business programme in place, which allows them to become involved Limerick events within the local Community, environmental improvements, employee well-being and Health & Safety.
