We know that together little things can amount to something so much bigger, that’s why we’re donating 20c from every copy of the Irish Examiner sold on Saturday, December 21 to St Vincent de Paul.”
Gerry Garvey, South West Regional Co-ordinator, Society of St Vincent de Paul said: “We are delighted that the Irish Examiner is working with St Vincent de Paul again this year. The initiative will be of great benefit to families and individuals who otherwise might face a winter of emptiness..no food..no fuel for fire..no books for school. The monies raised will be used to help these people through the coming winter months.”
