The Blackwater Motors Group is about to donate a 231 reg Volkswagen Crafter to Cork Penny Dinners in order to assist the charity in carrying out much-needed duties in delivering food parcels to those in need around Cork City & County.

To mark the announcement, Catriona Twomey from Cork Penny Dinners and Audi Cork Brand Ambassadors, Peter O’ Mahony and Lisa Jordan visited the newest Blackwater Motors dealership, the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicle Centre located in Wilton.

Speaking at the announcement, Blackwater Motors & Audi Cork, Group Fleet Manager, David McSweeney and a long-term volunteer with Cork Penny Dinners, said: “Being involved with Cork Penney Dinners, I know how much the charity will benefit from the donation of the van. On behalf of Cork Penny Dinners, I would like to thank the Blackwater Motors Group for their valued support.”

As well as the donation of the Crafter, the Blackwater Motors Group is coming together for the second year, to run a food drive appeal in all of their dealerships across Cork city and county. The drive commenced on Friday, 2 December and continues until 20 December, with staff members, customers and the general public being asked to drop non – perishable items at any of the dealerships which will then be redistributed to Cork Penny Dinners during Christmas week.
