Carbery Group were delighted to welcome members of the Irish Red Cross to their Ballineen HQ, to present the proceeds of a joint fundraising effort untaken together by Carbery with the four West Cork Co-Ops: Bandon, Barryroe, Drinagh and Lisavaird. Employees from Carbery locations around the world, co-op employees and customers and West Cork farmer suppliers all donated to the campaign, with each co-op and Carbery also pledging corporate donations. €91,250 was collected in total. €75,000 was donated to the Red Cross Ukraine appeal and €16,250 was donated to UNICEF, also for their Ukraine appeal. Carbery and the co-ops thanked everyone who donated for their generosity and support of the campaign.
