Published on Dec 19 2017 11:09 AM
Coca-Cola HBC Ireland and Northern Ireland have raise funds for its charity partners, MacMillan Cancer Support and the Simon Community.
In the second year of partnership with both charities, employees based across Lisburn, Dublin, Cork, Tipperary and Tuam contributed to the fundraising efforts, which were then matched by the business.
In total, €72,600 has been donated to the charities over the last two years, with €34,000 raised in 2017 alone.
“We were overwhelmed by the commitment and dedication our employees across the business showed for our charity partners in 2017. With the fantastic leadership of Our Charity Committee, we were inundated with ideas and offers of support from people across the business who were willing to provide both their time and money to support our charities.” Gillian Shields, Community Investment Manager at Coca-Cola HBC said.
“We’re delighted to present these funds to MacMillan Cancer Support and the Simon Community, who we know will use it to continue the important work that they do. I would also like to take the opportunity to thank them both for their fantastic partnership throughout the year.”
Both charities remain close to the heart of the business, having been selected by employees.
