THE recent Tesco bag pack held recently in aid of PIPS Banbridge has been hailed a great success.
Many local people donated their time to help on the day, including UUP MLA Jo-Anne Dobson.
She commended customers for their generosity. “I am absolutely delighted by the excellent response we have received from the customers here in Tesco,” she said. “They have been so generous and were also keen to find out more about the charity and this important cause.
“It has been a super experience to chat with people and at the same time raise awareness and funds for the PIPS Banbridge Branch. I attended the inaugural meeting of the group earlier this summer and know that many committed local people are working hard to provide support and guidance for those who are going through difficult times.
“I thank the shoppers and management of Tesco Banbridge and would encourage the public to give generously to this worthy cause.”
