A charity champion!

Workers at the Aldi store located in the Elysian Building have awarded €500 to suicide prevention charity Pieta House.

The donation is part of Aldi's Community Grants programme, which asks Aldi employees to nominate a local community group or not-for-profit for monetary support.

Each Aldi branch is allocated an individual annual bursary and a 'Charity Champion' who coordinates the programme.

Nominated charities are assessed by the company, and the one deemed most worthwhile receives €500.

Pieta House provides counselling to those suffering from suicidal ideation and self-harm, as well as to those bereaved by the suicide of a loved one.

Founded in Lucan, County Dublin in 2006, it has expanded to 13 centres across Ireland. It emphasises a compassionate approach and has provided services to more than 30,000 people in the past 12 years.

The Cork centre is located on the Model Farm Road in Bishopstown.
