Six EUROSPAR stores recently came together to raise over £1,100 for Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

The campaign was organised by Steven Jones, Team Leader at EUROSPAR Rathgael in Bangor, whose two daughters suffer with Cystic Fibrosis. Steven decided to bring his colleagues together to fundraise for Cystic Fibrosis Trust not only to raise awareness of the condition, but to give back to the charity that has given his family so much.

Steven said, “This charity has helped me and my family in a number of ways, not only providing us with much-needed grants, but my daughters will receive life-saving medication before the age of 12 thanks to the research which has been funded by Cystic Fibrosis Trust.

“Cystic Fibrosis is one of the most common genetic conditions worldwide and there is still very little known about it. It’s so important to me to raise awareness of the condition, but to also raise money for the amazing charity, who have done so much for my family and others in Northern Ireland.”

Steven kicked off the fundraising with a quiz instore giving one lucky shopper the chance to win a hamper containing exciting prizes, including two gift vouchers for Omeya Day Spa, a voucher for Donegans Bar, a bottle of wine, sweets and chocolates.

Steven continued, “I want to thank all our shoppers and the teams from the other five stores who all got involved to help me raise money for this deserving charity. Their support means a lot to me and it was great to come together to raise a total of £1,112 for Cystic Fibrosis Trust”.

The five other stores that helped fundraise towards the total are EUROSPAR Hardford Link, Newtownards, EUROSPAR Portaferry, EUROSPAR Gransha Road, Bangor, EUROSPAR Kircubbin and EUROSPAR Moat Street, Donaghadee.
