Students from the MBA Class 2016, recently presented Anne Marie Hayes, Milford Care Centre, Limerick, with a cheque for over €20k, which was raised by KBS MBA students and staff who took part in the 7th annual Barringtons Hospital Great Limerick Run in a bid to raise much needed funds for Milford Hospice.
John Cassidy, a member of the MBA class and part of the committee organising the charity drive, explained that MBA classes in other Universities “have held charity drives such as business dinners, but UL had never done anything like it before. We wanted to use the talents in the room to do something good”. The committee came together about three months ago, but “never expected to get this type of reaction” explained John. “The support we have received from UL and many other establishments has been second to none.” “Raising the money and getting involved with Milford Hospice has created a great atmosphere among the class.”
