Simon Community and Maxol form partnership

Maxol Oil and the Simon Communities in have announced details of a new partnership which recognises the Simon Community as the official Maxol Charity Partner for 2011.

Maxol and Simon have a presence in Ireland, North and South, and the partnership includes the Simon Community in Northern Ireland.

The partnership has been started with the placement of collection boxes in over two hundred Maxol service stations throughout the island of Ireland and the launch of the ‘Maxol Carwash for Simon Promotion’ which will take place during the summer months and will see Simon Communities receive a percentage of revenue from selected carwash facilities in the Maxol network.

Speaking about the new agreement, Tom Noonan, CEO Maxol said: “Maxol is very proud to be associated with the Simon Community as we have been long aware of the magnificent work carried out by Simon the length and breadth of the island of Ireland. We anticipate that our customers will respond generously to the range of charitable activities which we will partner with the Simon Communities on throughout the Maxol network during 2011”.

Mr Noonan said that if even a small percentage of their customers were to make a modest donation each month at their local Maxol service station, it would not take long before the first €100,000 would be raised to support the Simon Communities.
