If you ever needed an excuse to catch up with family and friends over a cuppa, every Friday this September when you buy a hot drink in M&S cafés, €1 will be donated to Pieta House.

 M&S is celebrating 40 years in Ireland this year and as part of the celebrations, M&S has set a target to raise €100,000 for its national charity partner Pieta House. The retailer has been raising money since January through various in-store activities and has now started a major fundraising drive for the month of September to help achieve its goal.

All money raised will support the Pieta House Resilience Academy – a mental health programme offered to second year students in secondary schools nationwide.  The money will enable Pieta House Resilience Academy facilitator teams to reach 30 extra schools and nearly 3,500 more students across the country.

So why not pick a Friday in September, invite a friend and visit any of the M&S cafés throughout Ireland. It’s good to talk!
