Danske Bank getting warmed up for the Winter Fair

By Staff Reporter

Danske Bank has announced that it will be the chief sponsor of dairy industry celebration the Royal Ulster Winter Fair for the 32nd year in a row.

And the bank said the event on December 14 at the Eikon Exhibition Centre at Balmoral Park, Lisburn would take place at a time of renewed opportunities for the sector in Northern Ireland.

Robert McCullough, head of agribusiness at Danske Bank, said: ''Danske Bank's long term sponsorship of the Royal Ulster Winter Fair is a signal of our continued support for the dairy sector and Northern Ireland's wider agri-food industry.

"We have supported the Winter Fair since its inception and remained committed to it through what have often been difficult times for farmers.

"We believe the balance of 'challenges' and 'opportunities' facing our sector has now shifted back in favour of the opportunities."
