125 ways to give back from Fisher & Fisher!
To acknowledge the efforts of its team of more than 40 people, the company is giving every team member £125 worth of vouchers for local businesses as a treat in the run up to Christmas.
The vouchers are all being sourced from local businesses impacted by recent flooding including Gordon’s Chemist, Nugelato Ice-Cream Parlour, George Preston Florist and Friar Tucks, Sugar Island, Newry.
Jacqueline Malone, Fisher & Fisher said, “We had planned as part of our celebrations to give our team an extra treat in the run up to Christmas.
"We were however, so lucky not to have been severely impacted by the recent flooding in Newry and other places. We really feel for the businesses hardest hit. We thought, what better way to support them than by encouraging our team to shop local.”
Ronan McGuigan, Fisher & Fisher added, “We have more than 40 team members working across our six offices, each with £125 altogether to spend in the outlets, all of whom we have strong business relationships with, developed over many years.
"We are very proud, not only of our team, but of our place in the local business community over the past 125 years. This initiative allows us to show a token of appreciation to both.”
Eamonn Connolly, Newry BID (Business Improvement District) Manager said, “This is a fantastic initiative by Fisher & Fisher. It really is a ‘win win’ for everyone.
"Fisher & Fisher gets to reward its staff and local businesses recovering from flooding get to benefit from this generosity.
"We really have seen such community spirit in the wake of the flooding in Newry and beyond. Small choices really do make a big difference as Fisher & Fisher could have sourced these vouchers from anywhere.
"If any other businesses are thinking about Christmas gifting and would like to support flood impacted businesses, please do feel free to contact Newry BID and we can support you with implementing this.”
