Dale Farm teams up with FareShare project to ‘share Christmas goodness’
The dairy cooperative, Dale Farm has partnered with the FareShare project to support and highlight the work of community organisations across Northern Ireland this Christmas.
FareShare’s NI delivery partner is Homeless Connect, a charity which aims to prevent and reduce homelessness, providing direct assistance to those in need through projects like FareShare.
Dale Farm will visit organisations, including Footprints Women’s Centre; Orchardville, Belfast; The Resource Centre, Derry/Londonderry; MUST Hostel, Cookstown; Good Morning Ballymena and YMCA Portadown to shine a light on the work they do for people in their local area. They will also provide additional donations, aiming to provide a boost to their much-needed causes.
“Dale Farm is all about sharing goodness,” said Claire Hale from Dale Farm. “All year round, and this Christmas in particular, we want to give a helping hand to some amazing organisations that help people in need.
“Through our ongoing partnership with FareShare, we are able to provide a range of Dale Farm products weekly which is then redistributed to important organisations like the ones we’re visiting this December.
“We hope that by giving each of these organisations a platform to tell of the great work they’re doing, others may feel inspired to either find comfort and the confidence to ask for help should they require aid or offer their support to these organisations through donations or volunteering. For us that is the true meaning of sharing goodness,” she added.
Meabh Austin from FareShare said: “We are incredibly grateful to our partner Dale Farm for acknowledging the exceptional pressures and challenges currently faced by local charities this winter. The visits will provide a much-needed boost for frontline workers and disadvantaged groups who are in need of that little bit of extra support in the run up to Christmas.”
