Halloween Charity Drive

Halloween is almost upon us and independent retail group Centra is encouraging customers to donate their pennies as they attempt to raise a fang-tastic £80,000 for Action Cancer.

80 Centra stores across Northern Ireland will take on a range of spook-tacular fundraising activities for staff and customers from October 27 to November 2 to raise funds for the local cancer charity including fancy dress, apple dunking and pumpkin carving competitions and Halloween themed deli days.

The funds raised by Centra staff and customers will benefit Action Cancer’s Health Action health programme for young people, which is sponsored by Centra and its independent retail partners across Northern Ireland. Health Action has been designed to educate young people on healthier lifestyles, including exercise, healthy eating and the dangers of smoking and alcohol.

Over the past 11 years, Centra stores have donated over £1 million to Action Cancer and their annual fundraising week is an important date each year to boost their fundraising total.

This year customers are encouraged to support the challenge by visiting their local Centra store throughout the week and enjoying the Halloween madness that is taking place, benefitting from the great Halloween offers and making that all important donation.
