Aurivo Co-op’s award winning brand, Connacht Gold has produced a specially designed 2014 recipe calendar for charity.
Special Olympics Ireland was designated by Aurivo as its 2013 Charity of the Year and the calendar is one of many initiatives undertaken across Aurivo businesses on behalf of Special Olympics Ireland. It is filled with mouth-watering recipes for all seasons from summer serving suggestions to winter warmers, and includes ideas for special occasions such as Valentines, Easter, Halloween and Christmas. “Baking and cooking meals in the home has become increasingly popular in recent years and we are thrilled to create this calendar in aid of Special Olympics. It contains delicious recipes to appeal to both sweet and savoury taste buds, with everything from red velvet cupcakes, lemon mousse and chocolate biscuit cake to soup, quiche and made hot chocolate and lots more delicious recipes too” said Lydia Rogers, Aurivo Brand Manager.
“Supporting charities such as Special Olympics Ireland is a key part of our company values and our commitment to giving back to communities each year. It allows all our employees, shareholders and customers work together to support very worthy causes like Special Olympics Ireland” she added.
To date, Aurivo staff have organised a golf classic, 5k run, charity cycle and walk in Forest Park, car wash and coffee mornings are planned in Connacht Gold retail stores this month. Commenting on the calendar, Myra Merrick, Regional Director, Special Olympics said “We are very grateful for the support that Aurivo and Connacht Gold have given us during the year.
The calendar is an ideal stocking filler for Christmas and we thank everyone in advance who buys it for their continued support”. The calendar is available for just €5 at all Connacht Gold Retail Stores and online at www.specialolympics.ie.
