Semichem Launches Charity Partnership with USPCA

Semichem has chosen the USPCA animal welfare charity to be the retailer’s new Charity of the Year Partner. As part of Scotmid Co-operative, Semichem, which has 16 stores in Northern Ireland aims to raise both funds and awareness of the work the USPCA carries out across the local communities, with a particular focus on education about animal welfare.

Staff from the Semichem stores will take part in various fundraising activities including hikes, sponsored walks, bingo and much more to support the animal charity.

David Thompson, Semichem’s Business Manager for Northern Ireland, said:

“We are really excited to announce our Charity of the Year partnership with the USPCA.  The aim of this year’s partnership will be to raise money with the aim of preventing animal cruelty through education.”

This Charity of the Year partnership is something different to anything we’ve done before, but it is a cause that resonates with our staff and customers. There are a lot of plans in the pipeline already for fundraising, so we look forward to talking to customers about how they can help us to raise as much money as possible for the USPCA.”

Brendan Mullan, Chief Executive of the USPCA, said:

“We are delighted to be Semichem’s nominated charity this year. This fantastic opportunity will not only help us to raise vital funds, but also, through the network of Semichem shops across Northern Ireland, it will help us to raise awareness of animal welfare issues and to gain wider support for the charity’s important work in preventing cruelty and relieving suffering in animals.”

“This is an exciting time for the USPCA and we look forward to the year-long partnership with Semichem. With the support from Semichem staff and customers, we will continue to advance animal welfare through our Animal Hospital, Schools Programme, Cruelty Investigations, Animal Rehoming and Wildlife Rescues.”
