Aldi store donates €500 to Purple House

Purple House Cancer Support is the latest charity to benefit from Aldi's Community Grants programme. Aldi's Bray staff have awarded Purple House Cancer Support a €500 grant in recognition of its tremendous work within the local community and to help support its vital services.

The €500 grant was presented to Brendan O'Leary, Margaret Byrne and John Woods of Purple House Cancer Support by Mircea Ciomea, Aldi's Bray store 'Charity Champion'. Now in its third year, hundreds of charities have been supported by the programme, with over €200,000 donated by Aldi.

John Curtin, Group Buying Director, Aldi Ireland, said: 'We are delighted our Bray store employees have chosen to support Purple House Cancer Support. The services it provides to people affected by cancer and their families make a huge difference. Supporting the local communities our stores serve is something that we truly believe in. Through our Community Grants programme and partnerships with both FoodCloud and youth organisation Foróige, we have been able to directly help many of the worthwhile charities and organisations making a huge difference to County Wicklow.'
