Asda raises over £100,000 for Northern Ireland Hospice

ASDA

A ‘super’ fundraising effort from Asda colleagues has pushed the total raised for the Northern Ireland Hospice to over £100,000.

Colleagues and customers in Asda stores across Northern Ireland took part in a special superhero themed weekend, which included sponsored exercise ‘bikeathons’ and face painting.

Following the two-day event, Asda’s team of 17 Community Life Champions, who helped coordinate the fundraising effort, presented a cheque for £11,500 to the charity, pushing the total raised over the milestone figure.

Senior Director for Asda Northern Ireland, George Rankin, commented,

“The work that the Northern Ireland Hospice does is vital for people all over Northern Ireland. We see ourselves as very much a part of the local community and it’s our privilege to support this worthy cause. We are incredibly thankful to all of our colleagues and customers who joined in the fun over our superhero weekend to help us reach this landmark total!”

Eva Toal, Corporate Fundraiser commented,

“NI Hospice is delighted to receive this significant donation from Asda to help with the cost of the fit-out of our new facility.  We are overwhelmed by the continued support of Asda colleagues and customers and wish to thank everyone for their valued contribution to our annual ‘Operation Purple’ fundraising campaign with U105. NI Hospice is proud to partner with Asda, and the support we have received over the past few years has been invaluable to the work we do.”

Northern Ireland Hospice provides specialist care to children, young people and adults with life-limiting illness – aiming to provide the best quality of life for patients and their families.
