M&S is celebrating 40 years in Ireland this year.

As part of their celebrations, M&S want to do something special for their national charity partner Pieta House.

They've set a target of raising €100,000 for Pieta House, to go towards helping the Resilience Academy.

The Resilience Academy is an important programme for second year students across the country which focuses on mental health.

€100,000 will allow the Resilience Academy to reach an extra 30 schools, and nearly 3,500 more students across the country.

They've had some great feedback from students who have already taken part in the six-week programme.

“What I liked the most was it’s like a break between school and stress and it’s also for us to relax and think about taking care of ourselves”

M&S has been working hard since January to meet their target through lots of fun in-store activities.

Every Friday for the month of September was a Good to Talk Friday in Marks & Spencer cafés, where €1 of all hot drinks sold went directly to Pieta House.

This Friday marks the last Good to Talk Friday taking place in all M&S cafés.

Now, to wrap up the month of fundraising, M&S staff in Dublin will also be taking on a walk from their store to the Mary St store on Saturday, October 5th.
