To celebrate the launch of Your Community Supermarket we have been asking our customers to nominate a SUPERHERO from their local community. Here's our SUPERDad Winner, Mark getting an unexpected surprise from his daughter Emma at EUROSPAR Rathgael Road.
Mark was named the overall winner of the EUROSPAR Community SUPERHEROES: SUPERDad competition, just in time for Father’s Day.
The Newtownards man was surprised in-store at Rathgael Road on Saturday 10th June and was presented with a £500 cheque and trophy after being nominated online by daughter Emma. He was selected as the overall winner from the hundreds of entries received via the EUROSPAR Facebook channel and in stores throughout Northern Ireland. A father of two daughters, Mark has always been there for both Emma and her sister Amy, caring for them both through illness and difficult times. When Amy passed away in 2013, he decided to honour her memory by setting up ‘Love Amy’, a charity that raises money for individuals and families affected by cancer.
Praising her Dad on his win Emma said, "I can't believe my Dad was chosen. It has been hard since Amy passed away, but he has done so much for charity since then to raise funds and awareness. It’s so amazing to be able to give him this prize, I hope it shows him how much I appreciate him and how proud myself and all our family are of him.’’
