With the Christmas countdown well and truly on, SPAR and EUROSPAR NI’s Christmas sandwiches are now available, with festive favourites returning for the most wonderful time of the year.

Shoppers can choose from a traditional turkey, sausage and stuffing sandwich, a turkey, smoked bacon and stuffing wrap, plus a festive brie and cranberry sandwich to get into the seasonal spirit, while also supporting two local charities.

10p from the purchase of every sandwich or wrap from the dailyDeli Season’s Eatings range will go towards SPAR and EUROSPAR NI’s charity partners, Marie Curie and Cancer Fund for Children.

In the past four years, donations from sandwich purchases have raised over £9,000 for the charities which offer services across every community in Northern Ireland.

Bronagh Luke, Head of Corporate Marketing at Henderson Group commented; “Christmas sandwiches are a staple of the season, and often the first taste of Christmas ahead of the big day – our traditional turkey sandwich is our biggest seller each year!

“We are delighted to be able to continue to support our two store partnership charities with this popular range, with donations growing year on year. We have raised over £9,200 so far, with donations rising alongside the popularity of our fresh, handmade Christmas sandwich range.”

Henderson’s partner Around Noon, the award-winning food-to-go manufacturer from Newry, has created the Christmas collection.

Gareth Chambers, CEO at Around Noon said; “We are extremely proud of our partnership with Henderson Group and our collective teams love developing great food for Christmas.

“We pride ourselves on producing quality food with great local provenance and our team of chefs are always seeking out new and exciting flavours from around the world to bring to market.”

The festive dailyDeli range of Christmas sandwiches are available across SPAR, EUROSPAR, ViVO, ViVOXTRA and ViVO Essentials stores now.
