SUPERVALU stores across Northern Ireland have reached a major fundraising milestone for the Action Cancer Big Bus screening and health promotion unit.
A recent week-long fundraising blitz, during which customers were asked to donate loose change to the Big Bus, has brought the total amount raised by stores for the charity's mobile cancer services to £1million since 2001.
The Action Cancer Big Bus was launched in 2006 by Gloria Hunniford, whose daughter Caron Keating died from breast cancer. More than 26,000 people have used early detection, cancer prevention and support services housed on the unit, at over 1,000 locations, including local companies and community groups.
The SuperValu stores in Lisburn and Moira took part in the recent fundraising week.
