'The work and services provided by Dundalk Simon Community are crucial to the local Louth community. We are delighted our Dundalk employees have chosen to support the organisation.

'Giving back to the local communities our stores serve is something we are passionate about and we are proud to support the vital work done by charities and not-for–profit organisations across County Louth.
