Aurivo Co-op has announced that the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind is its charity partner for 2021.
Over the coming year, Aurivo employees will organise fundraising events for the charity, as part of the Co-op's Charity of the Year programme.
The funds raised by Aurivo will sponsor an Irish Guide Dogs puppy who will be trained to change the lives of people who are vision-impaired, and families of children with autism.
Aurivo has donated more than €440,000 since it started its Charity of the Year programme.
Last year, the Co-op raised €40,000 for the Irish Wheelchair Association to buy a specially-adapted bus for the Northwest region.
