Through the partnership, ViVO stores across Northern Ireland hope to raise £20,000 for Age NI in the next year, which will be used to fund vital services aimed at improving the lives of older people.

In addition to the fundraising campaign, the partnership will also see the appointment of a ViVO Ambassador in every store, who will act as a fundraising champion.

The fundraising campaign by ViVO stores will help to support these vital outlets and reduce the problems facing older people from all walks of life in Northern Ireland. Included in the range of fundraising activities planned is a Christmas Hamper Raffle, which customers can enter for as little as £1 and many stores will also host a Coffee morning for customers in the New Year.

Partnership highlights

  • Over 80 Christmas hampers sent to all stores across Northern Ireland.

  • £1,000 raised at the official opening of Sproule Vivo in Trillick, County Tyrone
