THE PERMANENT TSB COMMUNITY FUND JOINS FORCES WITH THE MARIE KEATING FOUNDATION FOR UPCOMING CONCERT4CANCER EVENT
The Concert4Cancer will be broadcast on Virgin Media One on Friday 28th August
permanent tsb has a long history of supporting our customers and communities and we are committed to building upon this legacy as we continue to rebuild trust and help to make a difference. Through our commitment to Responsible Business, we are focussed on doing just that – building on our 200 year history and playing an active role in communities across Ireland. That’s permanent support.
We believe that now, more than ever, business has a profound role to play in supporting communities to navigate this new, incredibly disrupted world and transformed society. The impacts of Covid-19 have been challenging for the charity sector and the Marie Keating Foundation is no different, as the provision of vital cancer services have been impacted by the onset of a global pandemic. To help support delivery of these critical services, the permanent tsb Community Fund is proud to support the upcoming Marie Keating Concert4Cancer event.
The Concert4Cancer will feature a host of national and international stars, including Ronan Keating, Gary Barlow, Nathan Carter, Brian Kennedy, and Paddy Casey – with many more artists to be announced in the coming days. The star studded event is aiming to raise over €1 million euro on the night, enabling the foundation to continue to provide a critical service to the people of Ireland, at a time when they need it most.
As cancer levels continue to grow across the country, there isn’t a family anywhere that hasn’t been impacted, either directly or indirectly. More than 43,000 new cases are diagnosed every year, with 1 in 2 people being affected.
Today, the Marie Keating Foundation is one of the leading voices in Ireland for cancer prevention, awareness and support. permanent tsb is proud to support their commitment of being there for people diagnosed with cancer, and their families, through every step of their cancer journey.
With a presence in more than 80 locations nationwide, permanent tsb is a local community bank whose purpose is to work hard every day to build trust with our customers. We are a community serving the community and our support of this event is a demonstration of that purpose in action.
The Concert4Cancer, brought to you by the permanent tsb Community Fund will be aired on Virgin Media One on Friday August 28th at 9pm. Tune in to pledge your support for this incredibly worthy cause!
The event is supported by media partners Extra.ie, Today FM, 98FM, Spin1038, Spin SouthWest and Irish Music Magazine.
