Co. Armagh vegetable supplier, Gilfresh Produce has teamed up with Centra to help raise vital funds for NI’s leading local cancer charity Action Cancer.
The Loughgall company, which has been supplying vegetables to MRPNI for 18 years, will donate 10p for every Seasonal Vegetable pack sold in Centra stores throughout Northern Ireland from April 5-25.
The promotion will benefit Action Cancer, which has been supported by Musgrave for over 14 years through Centra’s support of the charity’s Health Action Programme, SuperValu’s sponsorship of its Big Bus and additional fundraising activity each year throughout stores.
The fresh local offering by Gilfresh Produce is a home-grown treat for customers with the 1kg Seasonal Vegetable pack, which consists of carrot, parsnip, turnip, onion and parsley, on special offer for £1 throughout the period.
Speaking about why they wanted to support Action Cancer, Danielle Mitchell of Gilfresh Produce said: “Action Cancer is a fantastic local charity which supports so many people affected by cancer. We felt it was a great opportunity to support this worthy cause through our relationship with Musgrave by encouraging their customers throughout Northern Ireland to support Action Cancer while making the most of the fresh local produce grown on their doorstep.”
Aiden Kearney, MRPNI Trading Manager said: “We are delighted to have Gilfresh Produce support our charity partner, Action Cancer through this fantastic promotion, as Musgrave continues to support the Action Cancer Big Bus and Health Action programme. I would encourage our customers throughout Northern Ireland to pick up a pack in-store during the three-week promotion.”
Action Cancer’s Gillian Thomson commented: “This is a fantastic way to help raise money for Action Cancer and I would like to thank Gilfresh Produce and Musgrave Retail Partners for supporting us as we continue our mission to save lives and support local people affected by cancer through detection, support, prevention and awareness.”
