Moy Park has surprised five County Antrim primary schools, Knockahollet PS (Ballymena), Creavery PS, (Antrim), Diamond PS, (Cullybackey), Carrickfergus Central Integrated PS and Sunnylands PS, (Carrickfergus) with £500 donations.
As part of the company’s 80th celebrations, Moy Park launched a Christmas competition online, asking its surrounding communities in NI and GB to nominate a local school, with 40 winning schools each being surprised with a donation to support their Christmas festivities.
Twenty winning schools in NI and 20 in GB were randomly selected to receive £500 each, to help them ‘Make Magical Moments’ this Christmas.
Nuala Hall, Principal of Carrickfergus Central Integrated Primary School said:
“Central Integrated PS are delighted to have been selected as one of only 20 schools in Northern Ireland to receive this donation from Moy Park. It will be used to ensure that our children have a fantastic Christmas party with lots of lovely treats.”
Joanne Lyons, Principal of Sunnylands Primary School added:
“Sunnylands is celebrating 70 years at the heart of the community and what a great way to celebrate! We are so grateful to Moy Park for enabling us to throw a Christmas party for our whole school, with entertainment, a movie, and treats! A special memory for all our children and staff to help mark our important milestone of 70 years. Thank you, Moy Park.”
Ellen Wright, Moy Park Senior Brand Manager said:
“The response from our surrounding communities has been amazing! We had over 7000 entries to the online competition, with 40 schools in NI and GB winning £500 to help them Make Magical Moments in their school this merry season.
“At Moy Park we’re delighted to celebrate our 80th birthday by giving back to our local schools, the money awarded to each winning school will be sure to add an extra bit of sparkle to their festivities.”
