Lidl Ireland is delighted to donate £1000 to RNLI Portrush, as its chosen Charity of the Week - a new initiative in the Lidl Community Works programme.

Charity of the Week sees Lidl donate £1000 every week for a year to local charities and groups across Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland and will run alongside existing support programmes already in place at each of Lidl’s four regional sales offices.

These worthy causes are selected by store teams in recognition of their excellent work in the local community. The Lidl store teams are best placed to choose these groups as they see first-hand, the positive impact that is made in the areas in which they operate.

The Portrush RNLI volunteer crew undergo rigorous training in order to fulfil competencies required to save lives at sea.

As a charity organisation, they rely solely on the help of volunteers and supporters to run this lifesaving service and keep the public safe around the Causeway coastline through a range of services including search and rescues, water safety initiatives, flood rescues and lifeguard patrols.

“Our Portrush team are proud to have selected RNLI Portrush, as their Charity of the Week. Supporting and investing in local communities is something that Lidl are committed to and we are delighted to be able to make this contribution,” said Store Manager, Tomas Fusek.
