Aldi is delighted to announce that Cahir Day Care Centre is the latestcharity to benefit from Aldi’s new community support fund. Aldi’s Cahir store staff have awarded Cahir Day Care Centre a €500 grant in recognition of its tremendous work within the local community and to help support its vital services.

The €500 grant was presented to Lil Davis, Manager and Bob Condon, Treasurer at Cahir Day Care Centre, by Aldi’s “Charity Champion” Padraig Collins.

Commenting, Finbar McCarthy, Group Buying Director, Aldi Ireland, said, “We are delighted our Cahir store employees have chosen to support Cahir Day Care Centre, as they play a pivotal role in bettering the local community as a whole. The social outlet Cahir Day Care Centre provides for older people is vital in helping combat loneliness. Supporting the local communities our stores serve is something that we truly believe in and we are proud to be contributing to the important work done by charities and not-for–profit organisations across County Tipperary through our community support fund.” 

 

Aldi’s community support fund programme provides each Aldi employee with the opportunity to nominate a charity, community group or not-for-profit organisation within their local community for support.  Nominated charities are assessed according to a defined selection criteria, with the organisation deemed the most worthwhile receiving a €500 donation from Aldi. 

 

Each of Aldi’s 128 Irish stores has been allocated an individual annual bursary fund and a “Charity Champion” assigned to co-ordinate the programme at a local level and work closely with the local charities and not-for-profit organisations. The programme aims to make a difference to the communities Aldi’s stores’ serve, focusing on helping develop Ireland’s youth, combat food poverty and improve the wellbeing of families.
