Bray People - - NEWS -

EAST Wick­low Youth Ser­vice in Ark­low has been cho­sen as the re­cip­i­ent for a grant through Aldi’s Com­mu­nity Grants Pro­gramme.

Aldi’s Ark­low staff were de­lighted to present East Wick­low Youth Ser­vice with a €500 cheque in recog­ni­tion of its vi­tal work and con­tri­bu­tion within the lo­cal com­mu­nity and to help sup­port its es­sen­tial ser­vices. Sean Car­ley, Aldi’s Ark­low ‘Char­ity Cham­pion’, pre­sented the €500 grant to Karen Nolan and Eileen Ward of East Wick­low Youth Ser­vice.

Fin­bar McCarthy from Aldi Ire­land said: ‘ The work and ser­vices pro­vided by East Wick­low Youth Ser­vice are cru­cial to the lo­cal Ark­low com­mu­nity. We are de­lighted our Ark­low em­ploy­ees have cho­sen to sup­port the or­gan­i­sa­tion. Giv­ing back to the lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties our stores serve is some­thing we are pas­sion­ate about and we are proud to sup­port the vi­tal work done by char­i­ties and not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions across Wick­low. Last year we helped 120 char­i­ties and not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tions na­tion­wide and we hope to sur­pass that num­ber this year.’

Now in its sec­ond year, the pro­gramme pro­vides each Aldi em­ployee with the op­por­tu­nity to nom­i­nate a char­ity, com­mu­nity group or not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion within their lo­cal com­mu­nity for sup­port.
