Lyons Tea is to again partner with Pieta House, aiming to raise awareness and much-needed funds for the charity and the vital services it offers free of charge.
Lyons invites trade customers to pledge their support to Pieta House and, for every special case of Lyons Original 600 purchased, Lyons will donate 50 cent to the charity, while stocks last. Additionally, trade customers can pledge their support online at ufs.com/pietahouse and Lyons will donate 50 cent to Pieta House.
Customers of Unilever Food Solutions will also have the opportunity to make a charitable donation worth €5 to Pieta House by using their Chef Rewards points on the loyalty programme during September and October. Check out ufschefrewards.com
Retail customers will be able to show their support by purchasing promotional boxes of Lyons Original Blend 80s. For every box sold, Lyons will donate 10 cent to Pieta House and boxes will be available from the end of September, while stocks last.
Lyons tea drinkers will be able to support Pieta House at a number of events being planned to mark World Mental Health Day on October 10. Lyons has also created a special recipe guide that can be downloaded, which is full of recipe inspiration if trade customers are planning to hold a tea morning on October 10.
Commenting on the Lyons tea campaign Brian Higgins, CEO of Pieta House said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Lyons again this year. Last year’s campaign was a tremendous success and not just for fund raising. The campaign allowed Pieta House take over boxes of Lyons tea and gave us direct access to thousands of households around the country so that we could provide contact information for anyone in need of our services.
“All donations raised through this wonderful partnership will allow us to continue supporting people across the country in their time of greatest need. With the public’s help, we can continue to serve individuals and communities across Ireland by answering the phones and keeping the doors of our centres open for those who need our support. Pieta House provides a completely free service and we rely on fundraising to be able to continue to provide this vital care.”
