SuperValu and Centra, part of Musgrave Northern Ireland, have awarded their first set of £1K donations through their £40K Big Community Giveaway fund to community groups across the region.

Portglenone Enterprise Group was one of the recent organisations to be awarded a donation. They have organized a range of cross community events throughout the year that has keep both sides of the community working together. For example, they refurbished the old Bank building at the heart of the village to turn it into a community hub.


Portglenone Enterprise Group Director, Jim Gaul said:


“Portglenone Enterprise group has a small committee of volunteers who manage the Christmas Lights Festival, so support from our local businesses is essential. This funding from Supervalu will go towards lighting the village for the Christmas period. We are very grateful for this contribution towards the festival which will help to illuminate the village and enhance Christmas spirit”.

Desi Derby, Director of Marketing at SuperValu and Centra said:


“We’re committed to supporting local now more than ever before. Our community organisations are working hard to make a positive impact, but they need our support.


“We’re delighted that Portglenone Enterprise Group has received one of our 40 Big Community Giveaway donations which will help them make a real difference in their area. It’s just one way that we can help to support and give back in the communities where our stores are located.”

Applications are still open, and SuperValu and Centra are encouraging customers to nominate organisations, charities and other not-for-profit groups that are making a difference in their communities.

Customers can nominate a local group or charity until 8 December, by visiting their local SuperValu or Centra store, where they will be invited to scan a QR code and fill in their details online.


Applicants must demonstrate the difference the group has made in their community, why they deserve the funding and what the donation will be used for.

The initiative is sponsored by Ballygowan, Boyne Valley Group, Hartleys, Lucozade and Walkers and kindly supported by Musgrave’s retail partners.

Full terms and conditions can be found on the SuperValu and Centra websites.
