Barleystone launch new Jack & Jill Foundation Initiative

Barleystone Paving, part of the O’Reilly Group based in Co. Cavan, are proud to announce the release of their new fundraising initiative in conjunction with The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation. They have launched a new Guaranteed Irish Play Sand Bag, which will raise much needed funds for the foundation this summer.

The Play Sand Bags will be available through Barleystone Paving stockists and merchants throughout the country. It is a clean and safe children’s play sand available in a colourful
20kg bag perfect for children’s sand pits and will provide hours of fun. Chris O’Reilly, Sales Manager at Barleystone developed the product from initial product development – right through to stocking the product throughout the country. Chris said “Barleystone / Jack & Jill Play Sand Bags are now available nationwide and are an amazing way for consumers to make a donation towards the care of sick children and their families, whilst providing a fun product for children”.

“The play sand is produced in our factory in Co. Cavan and has been designed, manufactured and bagged in our own facility. We are very proud to say this Play Sand is Guaranteed Irish” added Chris.

Barleystone Paving will donate 50% of the manufacturer`s profits of each Play Sand Bag sold to their merchants throughout the country directly to The Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation. Aoife Gavin, Marketing Manager of O’Reilly Group added “We are absolutely delighted to be supporting the Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation this year. The funds raised by our donations from the sale of the Play Sand Bag initiative will provide much needed nursing and respite support for sick children and their families. The thought that every €16 raised equates to ONE HOUR of home nursing care for a Jack & Jill child is what attracted us this year to this amazing charity. That’s how we came to the slogan on this year`s
bag – every child at play will help another family live better each day.
