Northern Ireland’s leading food and coffee brand Bob & Berts fundraising efforts set to raise £25,000 ahead of Christmas to raise vital funds for Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice.
On the lead up to the busy festive period, Bob & Berts stores across Northern Ireland will be asking customers to make an optional £1 donation on every purchase in support of Hospice, and filling collection cans.
Bob & Berts Marketing Manager, Jordan Graham, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be supporting Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice once again this Christmas. Covid-19 has had a devastating impact on the charity’s fundraising, so we thought we’d join them again to support their much loved ‘Jingle all the Way’ festive fundraising campaign.
The team has raised an amazing £22,000 last year in support of the charity, and this year we are aiming to raise even more to help Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice give the gift of care this Christmas. We’d encourage all our customers, new and old to help us by popping into their local Bob & Berts store and donating to this much-loved local charity.”
Mary McCall, Director at Northern Ireland Hospice and Children’s Hospice, added: “It costs a staggering £16.5M every year to run our vital services, so having the support of local community businesses like Bob and Berts makes a real difference and allows us to continue to provide Hospice specialist care to local people who need it most.”
We’d like to wish all of the Bob & Berts teams the best of luck ahead of their ‘Jingle all the Way’ fundraising. Without their continued support we simply couldn’t continue to be there for our patients and their families who depend on our lifeline care.”
