The Chernobyl Children's Project and Sports Against Racism Ireland are the charities benefiting from the donations.

Founder of SARI Frank Buckley said the donation meant a lot: “We've been struggling for the last nine years with funding but the work that people do around Sports Against Racism Ireland is kind of a reward in a lot of ways. With today’s announcement of €50,000 for the charity, we're all delighted.”
