Topaz customers and staff have raised over €280,000 in the past two years for their charity partner Aware, it was revealed today.

"As well as fundraising, the partnership aims to promote positive mental health and to highlight the important services that Aware provides," the company stated.

In the month of September alone Topaz staff nationwide raised over €17,000 through a variety of fundraisers for Aware’s 'Beat the Blues' campaign.

Topaz brand ambassador, former Munster rugby back-row Alan Quinlan, who has himself experienced depression, was on hand in Cashel recently to support staff in their fundraising efforts.

For more information on depression and Aware’s support services see the Aware website.
