Dealz and Poundland stores across Ireland and the UK have donated over 100,000 Easter Eggs in support of our brave frontline workers and those providing care and support within local communities.
Each of Dealz’s 66 stores across the Republic of Ireland have donated Easter eggs to their chosen local charity or organisations, from national hospitals to care homes and local charities.
Dealz customers were also given the opportunity to join in and give back to local charities and communities. From Wednesday, 8 April, Dealz customers were able to purchase and donate an Easter Egg as a show of support to those looking after them and their loved ones. On Good Friday, Dealz added customers’ donations to the chocolate deliveries sent out across communities.
A number of teams from Dealz stores across Ireland together with their generous customers have been busy donating and delivering essentials and treats to hospitals for doctors, nurses, paramedics and all the frontline staff as a “thank you” for all of the amazing work being carried out.
The teams have donated and delivered products to the Paediatric Unit in Sligo General Hospital; over 500 boxes of Milk Tray were donated to hospital staff in UCH Galway; product donations were made to the catering and the paramedics and ambulance staff in Mayo General Hospital; lots of goodies arrived to Mullingar Regional Hospital and the local fire brigade services in Longford last week and HSE staff in Limerick received a product drop-off from Dealz comprising customer donations, to name a few. Staff in Henry Street, Limerick have also been allowing ambulance crew members shop for free last week as a thank you for the amazing work they are doing.
“We look forward to continuing to support our local frontline workers and communities in whatever way we can,” said Sharon Sheridan, Dealz country manager trading.
