ASDA Coleraine was celebrating this week after helping to raise almost £50,000 for the Northern Ireland Hospice.

‘Community Colleagues’ in Asda stores across Northern Ireland, including Coleraine’s Sheila Palmer, spearheaded their stores fundraising, which centred around a raffle for a brand new Ford Fiesta from Lindsay Ford Cars.

Sheila was on hand to present the cheque for £49,590 to Diane Weston, Corporate Fundraiser for NI Hospice.

Charlotte Elliot, Regional People Manager for Asda NI said: “I’m so proud of Sheila and all the Community Colleagues across Northern Ireland for their hard work on this amazing campaign.

“And of course, I’d like to thank all the Asda shoppers who gave so generously in aid of this brilliant cause. The Northern Ireland Hospice do such valuable work and this donation will make a huge difference to the lives of local people living with cancer.”

Diane Weston from NI Hospice added, “We are so grateful to ASDA for this generous donation and wish to thank all Asda colleagues across Northern Ireland for their continued commitment to the Hospice and ASDA customers for giving so generously to help us provide care for local people with life-limiting and terminal illness.”
