Don’t forget to stick to a 5km radius from you home and where necessary keep your social distance and wear a face covering!
PORT CREDIT UNION
The Christmas Shoebox Appeal is moving online!
Unfortunately, due to the effects of the COVID-19 restrictions, it is not possible to send gift-filled shoeboxes from Ireland this year.
Instead Team Hope will be asking schools, families, friends, communities and businesses to #TeamUpForTeamHope by donating gift-filled shoeboxes for children affected by poverty.
KEN SMOLLEN APPEAL

A box will be in place in the next couple of days.
