Dennison Commercials donates £20k to NI charities

Dennison Commercials recently donated £10,000 to both the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice and Mencap NI; a charity which supports those with learning disabilities.

Ahead of last Christmas, Dennison Commercials directors Katrina Dennison and John Jenkins visited the respective charities to present them with the £10k donations.

The donation will help support the Children’s Hospice in delivering specialist palliative care to infants and children, as well as support services for carers and families.

Dennison’s donation will also help fund Mencap’s services across the province, which include housing, education, employment and day-to-day support to help those with learning disabilities to live as independently as possible.

Katrina Dennison, Dennison Commercials director said: “It has been another difficult year for charities in Northern Ireland with fundraising activities disrupted once again due to the pandemic.

“Therefore, as a local business, we are delighted to present Mencap NI with a donation which will help the teams continue to provide support and services to those in our communities with learning disabilities.

“We are also once again very pleased to support the NI Children’s Hospice team which provides remarkable care and support for our local children and families.”

Dennison Commercials is one of the longest established and largest franchised Volvo Truck & Bus dealers in Ireland and the UK, with dealers in Ballyclare, Coleraine, Dungannon and Newry.

The family-run group is also the appointed JCB dealer in Northern Ireland for the sale and service of construction, industrial and access equipment.

Dennison Commercials will be exhibiting at this year’s inaugural CV Workshop EXPO, which takes place alongside the Auto Trade EXPO at Citywest Exhibition Centre, Dublin, May 7-8.
