Kavanagh’s SuperValu in Donegal Town couldn’t be accused of following the flock!
The team managed to raised €584 this week in aid of the Donegal Hospice, hosting a “guess the weight of Ben the sheep” competition.
With over 200 guesses, Deborah Bonnar was the lucky winner who guessed the correct weight and won €50 worth of lamb.
Store Manager Gareth Ferry said the event was a huge success.
“We were delighted with the success of this week’s fundraiser and would like to give special thanks to Mary Carr for giving us Ben the sheep for the day, he appeared to enjoy the event as much as we all did!
“We would also like to thank all the customers and community who joined in the fun and donated generously to this worthy cause. Each week we draw closer to our €30,000 goal for the Hospice and we are very grateful to all the people of Donegal who are generously helping us to help others”
