A Cork car dealership is teaming up with Cork Penny Dinners to help the charity carry out food parcel deliveries this Winter.
The Blackwater Motors Group is coming together for the 2nd year, to run a food drive appeal in all of their dealerships across Cork city and county.
The drive will run from Friday, December 2nd – Tuesday, December 20th, with staff members, customers and the general public being asked to drop non – perishable items at any of the dealerships which will then be redistributed to Cork Penny Dinners during Christmas week.
Blackwater Motors Group have announced that they will donate a 231 Volkswagen Crafter to the charity ahead of one of the busiest times of year.
To mark the announcement, Catriona Twomey from Cork Penny Dinners and Audi Cork Brand Ambassadors, Peter O’ Mahony and Lisa Jordan visited the newest Blackwater Motors dealership, the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle Centre located in Wilton.
Speaking at the announcement, Blackwater Motors & Audi Cork, Group Fleet Manager, David McSweeney & a long-term volunteer with Cork Penny Dinners, said:
