RYANAIR HAVE DONATED the €100,000 that their 2013 cabin crew charity calendar raised to a polish charity that treats children with cystic fibrosis.

Proceeds from sales of the 10,000 calendars were presented to TVN Foundation in the Polish capital of Warsaw.

The foundation was the sole recipient of this year’s award, beating off over 450 charity applications in the process. The money from the donation is to be used to purchase hospital equipment.

The deputy CEO of the charity, Anna Maruszeczko, said that children diagnosed with cystic fibrosis deserved the “utmost care”, but that the cost of this often exceeded the “financial capabilities of the average family.”

Ryanair’s cabin crew calendars, which started in 2008, have so far raised over €600,000 for various charities.
