Snack attack at PTS for charity

Pick up a snack at any PTS branch and help raise money for cancer fund for children

PTS is helping to feed the coffers of Cancer Fund for Children while helping to keep customers well fed.

The leading plumbers’ merchant has installed confectionary fridges and snack zones in all seven branches for customers keen to grab something quick on the go. But as well as holding off hunger, customers will also be helping the important work of the Cancer Fund for Children.

“We’re proud to be able to play our part. The snack areas have been added to all our trade counters and they’re proving really popular,” explained Barry Lowe, Regional Sales Manager, PTS. “We have set this up so that the profits from every sale will go directly to Cancer Fund for Children.

“Whether you’re having a pot noodle or grabbing a chocolate bar at PTS, you’re helping us to raise money for a brilliant charity.” Cancer Fund for Children ensures that no family has to face cancer alone. The charity is there for children and young people diagnosed with cancer, or living with a parent diagnosed with cancer and offers support at home, in the community, on the hospital ward and at its residential centre.

As part of the charity partnership, PTS has set a target of raising a substantial amount of money for the charity, and the snack fridges are just one part of the company’s fundraising efforts.

“We have football scratch cards which are proving really popular as they give players a chance to win £40, with the same amount going to the charity,” added Barry. “Our staff have stepped up to make up two teams for this year’s Belfast Marathon Relay and we’re also going to be entering a Mud Run.

“Our staff have really got behind these charity efforts while our suppliers and customers have been brilliant in supporting whatever we come up with. We’ll have lots of different events and other fundraising taking place during the year and we welcome any support the trade can give us.”

Branches in Belfast (Grosvenor Road and Duncrue), Lisburn, Enniskillen, Derry, Newry and Dublin.
