Sirius Buying Group members and suppliers have presented a cheque for £15,050 to Liver Foundation UK, the group has announced.
As a recipient and survivor of its valuable services, independent retailer Paul Cunningham, owner of A1 Appliances at Dursley in Gloucestershire, presented a cheque on behalf of his fellow Sirius Buying Group members and suppliers to the Liver Foundation at Birmingham’s Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Over the years, Sirius members have demonstrated a commitment to raising funds for a range of charities via auctions during its annual Trade Show & Awards Dinner in September and its overseas May Conference.
With the support of suppliers, Sirius members have over the years raised in excess of £60,000 for Cancer Research, plus more recently £42,000 for The Children of Cambodia Fund enabling the building of a school and sheltered accommodation, plus many more deserving charities, nominated annually by its members.
