Top Oil, Ireland’s leading family owned home heating and fuel business, has announced BUMBLEance as their charity partner for the southern region as part of a new CSR programme. This national CSR programme will run from April 2017 until April 2018. As part of the process, Top Oil employees were asked to nominate charities in each region.
The charity chosen for the Southern region is BUMBLEance. BUMBLEance will receive support from Top Oil in the form of fundraising initiatives coordinated locally by Top Oil employee volunteers throughout the year.

The main function of BUMBLEance is to transport children for FREE who have complex, long-term serious or life threatening illnesses between their home and hospital in addition to our end of life Angel Trip. We also provide Children’s Chemo Cab service, bringing children with Cancer in and out of Treatment Centres.
