This 'purple promo' for baling farmers has resulted in a whopping €14,000 being raised for sick children:

Hurrah for charitable farming! A whopping €14,000 has been raised after some creative baling.

Zeus Packaging and the 18 independent Co-ops that comprise Associated Trading Co-ops worked together throughout last summer to raise funds for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin through the sale of a special manufactured and distributed Purple Bale Wrap and Purple Bale Net.

The ‘Purple Promo’ was enthusiastically supported by farmers to the extent that it has seen some €14,000 handed over to the hospital for use in their treatment of the thousands of children that avail of the hospital’s facilities every year.

All parties involved in the promotion have expressed their sincere thanks to the farmers who supported it and they conveyed their best wishes for health and happiness in 2017.
