Northern Ireland Chest Heart & Stroke is over £25,000 better off thanks to the generous fund-raising efforts of Dunbia staff and farmers.
The charity was chosen by Dunbia staff as the nominated charity for 2014/15 and was the beneficiary of all monies raised through the company during this time.
Kerry Anderson, Director of Fundraising, NICHS expressed her delight and gratitude to Dunbia: “This is an exceptional donation from Dunbia staff and farmers and will go a long way towards our annual fund-raising target of £3m. The company is exemplary in how they embraced their fund-raising activity by engaging staff, suppliers and customers in such a positive way. The total donated shows what is possible when a focussed approach is adopted by large employers. On behalf of NICHS, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to our cause.”
Dunbia engaged in a range of fund-raising activities which consisted of a Farmer’s Gala Ball, Grocery Bag Pack, Cupcake competition to name but a few . “Dunbia has adopted a committed approach to CSR and we work to engage staff, suppliers and customers in all our CSR activity,” comments Janet Dobson, Dunbia Company Secretary.
