Stephanie Rogers, Asda Kilkeel Community Champion, who was at the presentation said: “We would like to say a big thank-you to all the shoppers who donated to our ‘Brave the Shave’ efforts. I know it means a lot to all the colleagues instore, especially those whose lives have been affected by cancer.
“The unit can become a home away from home for some young patients, so we wanted to support the efforts of the charity in ensuring it is a safe and comfortable environment. From extending the number of beds available to providing a play specialist, the donation will allow the team to continue to help children and their families at a very vulnerable time.”
