St. Vincent de Paul Collection

As part of the St. Vincent de Paul Society at school, we were asked to participate in the annual SVP Christmas collection. We were organised into groups of  three or four students per each 2 hour shift. Last Saturday morning Kate, Fiona and I collected money from busy Christmas shoppers at the doors of Tesco in Celbridge. I must be said that most people were very generous and willing to reach out and help some of the less fortunate people in their local community. Over the past few weeks we have also been encouraging students to bring in small gifts for the annual SVP Christmas appeal. We were delighted that so many people brought in gifts for the appeal and we know that they are going to a great cause. 

If you want to become part of the action and get invloved with the St. Vincent de Paul Society make sure you check out their website here.
