Greystones Cancer Support has become the latest charity to benefit from Aldi’s Community Grants programme, receiving a €500 grant from Aldi’s Greystones store team.
The €500 grant was presented to Anne Ivory, Mary O’Neill, Kathleen Kelleher and Gileen Morris of Greystones Cancer Support by Katarzyna Pakula, Aldi Greystones’ ‘Charity Champion’.
Aldi’s Community Grants programme helps fund local charities and organisations that contribute vital work and services in their local communities. Each local charity supported is chosen by Aldi employees, enabling them to help the local good causes they are passionate about.
Commenting Tomas Lisauskas, Aldi Greystones Store Manager said: “Our store team are proud to have chosen Greystones Cancer Support for our Community Grants donation. Providing people affected by cancer with transport to hospitals, social outings, support and guidance makes a huge difference.”
“Being part of and investing in local communities is something that Aldi is committed to and we are delighted to be able to make this contribution.”
