Gary Reid, one of Henderson Group’s longest serving lorry drivers who recently retired after 50 years of service, has raised an amazing £10,000 for the NI Children’s Hospice.

An avid photographer in his spare time, Gary decided to put his skills to great use, taking beautiful photographs of stunning scenery and nature across Northern Ireland.

With the help of Henderson Group, his photography was made into a calendar filled with a selection of his work and was sold across SPAR and EUROSPAR stores in Northern Ireland, resulting in an impressive £10,000 raised and donated to the NI Children’s Hospice.

Grace Stewart, Head of NI Children’s Hospice Services, commented, “We want to say a huge thank you to Gary and the Henderson Group for this generous donation, it means so much to us here at NI Hospice. Donations like this are needed now more than ever after the pandemic and this amount of money will go a very long way to providing specialist palliative care for children and adults with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses, and their families.”
