IN THE COMMUNITY

SuperValu take part in numerous activities throughout the community

Musgrave Retail Partners NI reached a massive fundraising milestone in 2013 – having donated more than £2 million to the work of its charity partner Action Cancer. The donation, believed to be one of the largest amounts ever raised by a company for an individual charity in Northern Ireland, was raised by SuperValu, along with Musgrave head office staff over the past 12 years. The funds have gone towards the Action Cancer Big Bus screening and health promotion unit and the charity’s health promotion programme for schools. Since the launch of the hi-tech Big Bus mobile in 2006, which SuperValu helped to pay for, 40,000 people have used the services onboard, including 22,000 women who were screened for breast cancer. SuperValu stores have now raised more than £1million for the Big Bus, and continue to keep it on the road by helping to cover the annual running costs.
