Action Cancer patron, Nuala McKeever has announced a welcome delivery to the charity from independent retail group SuperValu.
SuperValu stores across Northern Ireland raised over £85,000 last year, with SuperValu Downpatrick raising a fantastic £3,700 towards the total. Stores held events such as golf days, coffee mornings, raffles and trolley dash events to raise funds for Action Cancer’s Big Bus mobile screening and health promotion unit.
The Action Cancer Big Bus was launched in 2006, and since then almost 40,000 people have used the breast screening and health promotion services on the unit. As part of the partnership between Action Cancer and SuperValu, which originally started in 2002, stores host Big Bus visits and raise funds throughout the year to fund the life-saving service.
