Lidl has donated £1000 to CHARIS Integrated Cancer Care, Derry-Londonderry, as its chosen Charity of the Week - a new initiative in the Lidl Community Works programme.
Charity of the Week sees Lidl donate £1000 every week for a year to local charities and groups across Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland and will run alongside existing support programmes already in place at each of Lidl’s four regional sales offices.
These worthy causes are selected by store teams in recognition of their excellent work in the local community. The Lidl store teams are best placed to choose these groups as they see first-hand, the positive impact that is made in the areas in which they operate.
CHARIS Integrated Cancer Care support men and women affected by cancer at every stage of their journey as well as supporting families living with cancer or bereaved by cancer. CHARIS Integrated Cancer Care works in conjunction with clinical treatments for cancer and their comfortable treatment rooms are purpose designed for the delivery of complementary therapies by trained practitioners free of charge.
“Our Magherafelt team are proud to have selected CHARIS Integrated Cancer Care as their Charity of the Week. Supporting and investing in local communities is something that Lidl are committed to and we are delighted to be able to make this contribution,” said Area Manager, Charlotte McLaughlin.
