Centra’s employees are key to the success of the business, and last year we established the Pride of Centra awards to recognise colleagues who go above and beyond their duties and responsibilities. The awards celebrate hard working employees who show exceptional commitment to community initiatives, charity organisations, customer service and imaginative in-store ideas.
At the second Pride of Centra awards, Susan Doherty of Kelly’s Centra Letterkenny claimed top honours. Beating strong competition from 13 other finalists, judges chose Susan as the standout winner for her community based charity work and outstanding customer service. Susan is from the local area and has built strong relationships with customers, knowing them by their first names and ensuring they have everything they need. Even when she’s not working, Susan devotes her spare time to arranging in-store charity events and staff outings.
Susan commented; “It is such an honour to receive this Pride of Centra award. The past few years with Kelly’s Centra have been so enjoyable and the store plays an important role in the community. I would like to thank all our customers in Letterkenny for their ongoing loyalty and support to all our initiatives.”
Centra stores are at the heart of the local community and our charity initiatives make a real difference to both local and nationwide charities. Last year thousands of people got involved in Centra’s Walk the World initiative to raise much needed funds for the Irish Cancer Society’s Action Breast Cancer programme.
