Croí, the Heart & Stroke Charity, is delighted to have been chosen as Kavanagh Group’s 2020 Charity of the Year, and the two organisations have lots of great events planned to help raise awareness of the risk factors for heart disease and stroke across County Mayo.
On Friday, February 7, the Croí Health Team visited four of the Kavanagh Group stores, including Westport, Castlebar, Kiltimagh and Claremorris, delivering free heart health checks to customers and to celebrate the launch of this great new partnership.
“We are so delighted to have been chosen by the Kavanagh Group as Charity of the Year. Our work in Mayo is so important – we want to raise awareness of the risk factors for heart disease and stroke as so many of these cases are preventable! The support of Kavanagh Group allows us to continue our life-saving work and support the people of Mayo,” says Christine Flanagan, Croí Director of Fundraising.
The Kavanagh Group employs over 1,100 people across Ireland and the UK and is one of Ireland’s largest independent retailing companies, operating 14 supermarkets along with a number of other businesses, including the Wyatt Hotel, O’Cee’s Coffee Shop, and SuperValu Homewares Store. “We are very excited to join forces with Croí in the fight against heart disease and stroke. We want to promote good health and well-being with our employees and customers, and Croí’s work in Mayo is so important for the community,” says Noel Kavanagh Jnr, Managing Director.
