RTÉ 2fm will broadcast live from the Benetton Window on St. Stephens Green, Grafton Street, on Thursday 3rd December from 7am – 7pm in aid of the ISPCC.
Joining presenters Bernard O’ Shea, Jennifer Maguire, Nicky Byrne and Jenny Greene, Tracy Clifford and Eoghan McDermott will be names including Hozier, Jamie Heaslip, Vogue Wiliams, Hometown, The Riptide Movement, Angela Scanlon and more.
The event aims to support the ISPCC by encouraging listeners to text 2fmBall to 50300 to donate €2 and be in with a chance to win a ‘Golden Ticket’ which entitles you to two tickets to every show in the 3Arena plus two tickets to every MCD open air festival and concert for 2016.
The competition is currently running and will close live on the Eoghan McDermott Show from the Benetton Window on St. Stephens Green on Thursday 3rd December.
The funds raised will benefit the ISPCC which is the national child protection and welfare charity which focuses on keeping children safe and giving them the support they need to thrive.
ISPCC Child and Family support and mentoring services work with 1500 families and children across Ireland, and its 24-hour national listening service Childline responded to 460,000 contacts from children last year.
While some ISPCC services are a partnership with government, more than 80% of funding comes from the generosity of the Irish public, individual or corporate donations.
The Christmas Appeal will run in addition to the 2FM Xmas Ball for ISPCC which is taking place at the 3Arena on Wednesday December 23.
