This butchers shop has collected £10,000 for us over 20 years
Every penny counts.
Written by Sarah Matzen.
You might remember your parents telling you to count your pennies. This butcher’s shop in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland has been doing just that while they have been collecting for Concern Worldwide for 20 years.
Over the last 20 years, Stewarts Butchers and Delicatessen has received £10,000 in donations. The box has been sitting on the counter at Stewarts for twenty years now. It’s old and battered - but people recognise it, it’s become a part of the place.
We’ve been overwhelmed by the generosity of shoppers at Stewarts Butchers and Delicatessen on Church Street, who have dropped their spare change into the charity box.
The shop has been open since the seventies and the collection box has been in place since 1995, put there by Gabriel Stewart who started the family-run business. The shop is now run by his son Shane.
“Most people who come into the shop now don’t have to be asked to give. They know the routine. They throw a pound or two into the box.”
“As hard as times are for people in Enniskillen, the Concern collection box is a reminder that there are people elsewhere in the world who are in great need.”
Stewarts Butchers has been hugely supportive of the work of Concern for a long time. We greatly appreciate their help and the backing of their customers.
