This is the 3rd Christmas that Santa’s Helpers have helped families in the Laois areas who have found themselves struggling to live just day to day. Anyone with children always want to give their children a magical Christmas with Santa.  Last year Santa’s helpers reached in excess of 180 families in our local communities across Laois. Over 30 of these were in Portarlington.
