Charity Partnerships

Across our Group, each Division identifies a designated charity partner. At SHS Sales & Marketing, our site-nominated charity is Make-A-Wish Ireland. Make-A-Wish Ireland aims to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions, to bring hope, strength and happiness.

Staff across the company organise collections for local food banks and regularly take part in volunteer initiatives within their local area, supporting future skills by working with local schools and higher education providers.

As a member of Business in the Community through the wider SHS Group, we also contribute to local business networks, forums and activities.

Volunteering – it’s in our Spirit

Community volunteering has always been part of SHS, something we actively encourage across the business. We provide time and resources to aid employee involvement through our Give a Day volunteering scheme. We also support Business in the Community’s annual Give & Gain Day with a team from across our business taking up a community challenge.

Support

We are proud supporters of GroceryAid in Northern Ireland, the industry charity that supports people who work or have worked in the grocery, provisions and off-license sectors. We support the work of the charity through committees, events, awareness raising and engagement activities.

In 2023 we were honoured to receive a GroceryAid Gold Award in recognition of our support for the charity for the 15th year running.

In addition, we also support the Irish Grocers Benevolent Fund. The industry charity is passionate about tackling the challenges that grocery colleagues face and is committed to improving the lives of those who need it.
