A group of staff from Archers climbed Nephin, as part of the ‘Climb with Charlie’ fundraiser.
“There was a lot of interest to support the event, and we felt it was a good opportunity to get staff together from both branches,” reported sales manager for the Ballina branch Garret Michael.
Mayo playing in the National League final the same day meant a lot had to drop out of the climb, but those that did take part were fortunate to experience good weather and enjoy the superb views.
“We had collection buckets at tills in both branches and got a great response from our customers,” Garret added.
A total of €775 was collected, which Archers matched resulting in a total of €1550 being handed over to the two nominated charities.
