SuperValu and Centra’s £40K Big Community Giveaway supports 40 local groups with £1K donations
SuperValu and Centra, part of Musgrave Northern Ireland, have awarded a total of £40K to community groups across the region as part of their Big Community Giveaway.
From disability charities and community playgroups to sports clubs and health and wellbeing organisations, groups from Belleek to Bushmills and Draperstown to Downpatrick received their £1000 donation before Christmas, to help fund a range of good works projects.
Desi Derby, Director of Marketing at SuperValu and Centra said: “At SuperValu and Centra, we’re committed to supporting local and we’ve been absolutely delighted to award a total of £40,000 among groups and charities across Northern Ireland through our Big Community Giveaway.
“We were overwhelmed with nominations for so many deserving groups from sports clubs and youth groups to emergency response charities and counselling services – thanks to all our customers for taking the time to nominate. We hope the donations will make a difference and help these local groups continue their great work in their communities.”
From the end of October until 8 December, shoppers were invited to nominate a group they felt deserved to receive a £1,000 donation. The initiative was sponsored by Ballygowan, Boyne Valley Group, Hartleys, Lucozade and Walkers and kindly supported by Musgrave’s retail partners.
