Dundalk Credit Union Helps Light Up Dundalk Town Centre
Every Christmas, our local businesses, under the management of Dundalk BIDs, come together to support the costs of lighting up Dundalk streets across the Festive period. With one of the toughest trading years in history, Dundalk BIDs knew that this would be difficult for many of our local traders who have remain closed for large parts of this year.
With a strong and ongoing commitment to shopping local and supporting local businesses, the Board, Management and Staff at Dundalk Credit Union decided that a donation to the cost of the Dundalk Town Centre Christmas lights would be a perfect way to bring much needed cheer back to our streets during these challenging times and a sign of our support to our local traders.
Billy Doyle, CEO, Dundalk Credit Union says “Our focus has always been and will continue to be on our community. Everyone has certainly endured a very tough and challenging time in 2020 and that makes it all the more important for us to shine a light on our local businesses and traders. They need, more than ever, our custom and our support to ensure our vibrant town centre marches strongly into 2021.”
Martin McElligott, Dundalk Town Centre Manager added “We are delighted to have the support of Dundalk Credit Union this year. Our traders have had one of the toughest years ever. Opening up and encouraging our wider community to come in and shop safely in our town centre is vital to our business community’s future. The task of lighting up our town centre is expensive but so important, with the generous donation from Dundalk Credit Union our town centre is now festive, lit up and welcoming.”
Dundalk Credit Union would like to remind everyone of the very successful Dundalk Chamber Shop Local Voucher Programme, these vouchers keep our Christmas spending local and our commitment to our local economy even stronger.
