Tesco stores across Northern Ireland have helped to raise over £33,000 for Marie Curie, one of the UK’s leading end of life charity.
The money was raised by volunteer collections at Tesco stores across Northern Ireland on the 4th and 5th of March.
Tesco NI allowed Marie Curie to stage collections in March as part of Marie Curie’s Great Daffodil Appeal, which is a public collection campaign that happens annually in March.
Robert Wilson, Tesco Newtownbreda Community Champion, said
“We were delighted at Newtownbreda Tesco to welcome Marie Curie volunteers back into our store in March, after such a long period of Covid restrictions.
Our customers and colleagues have always been very supportive of the Marie Curie appeal every year, and it was great to see people back in the store wearing their Yellow Daffodils.”
Conor O'Kane, Senior Partnership Manager (NI & Scotland), at Marie Curie is very grateful for Tesco’s contribution:
“Marie Curie was absolutely delighted that Tesco NI again welcomed our volunteer collectors into stores across Northern Ireland in support of our annual Great Daffodil Appeal. Thanks to the immense generosity of customers and staff a phenomenal amount of money was raised to support end of life care for people across the whole of Northern Ireland.”
