Donegal Creameries will host its annual 5k Run/Jog/Walk in aid of Donegal Hospice on Tuesday 27th of May at 7.30pm at Crossroads, Killygordon.  This event has enjoyed great success and is now in its third year.  It promises to be a great evening of fun and camaraderie and everyone that takes part will be entered in a draw for some great prizes.

The Donegal Creameries’ Fun Run is just one of the many events taking place this year as part of Aurivo Co-op’s Charity of the Year initiative. Last week, Aurivo presented €40,000 to Special Olympics Ireland - the co-op’s charity 2013. Last year’s Donegal 5k run contributed significantly to these funds. Over the past number of years, Aurivo has donated approximately €170,000 to charity through the initiative.

Aaron Forde, CEO of Aurivo commented: “The Charity of the year programme is an important element for Aurivo as we believe it is vital to give back to the communities that support our business. By getting our staff involved in fun, local events, we were able to raise much needed funds for worthy charities.”

This year, Aurivo is supporting local hospices including Donegal, Galway, Mayo/Roscommon and the North West Hospice.
