Good2Talk is the latest charity to benefit from Aldi’s new community support fund, after receiving €500 from Aldi Longford staff in recognition of its tremendous work within the local community and to help support its vital services.
The community support fund programme provides each Aldi employee with the opportunity to nominate a charity, group or not-for-profit organisation within their local community for support.
Each Aldi store nationwide has been allocated an individual annual bursary fund and a ‘Charity Champion’ assigned to co-ordinate the programme. The €500 grant was presented this week by Alan Perry, Aldi Longford’s Charity Champion.
Commenting, Finbar McCarthy, Group Buying Director, Aldi Ireland, said: “We are delighted our Longford employees have chosen to support Good2Talk as they play a pivotal role in bettering the local community as a whole.
“Good2Talk Longford’s work in supporting positive mental health in the community by providing effective and accessible counselling services is vital. Supporting the local communities our stores serve is something that we truly believe in and we are proud to be contributing to the important work done by charities and not-for–profit organisations across Longford through our community support fund.”
