€13,300 And Counting


A week ago, on Monday, November 12, RTÉ Gold presenter Rick O’Shea asked members of his book club to donate the price of a cheap paperback book, €5, to housing and homeless charity, the Peter McVerry Trust.

Since then, €13,300 has been raised for the charity.

Now he’s calling on corporations and companies to contribute, saying:

“I’d love companies and corporates to consider giving a tiny something at this time of year on top of all of the members of the public digging deep. Your fiver will make such a difference to the number of people they can help on cold, dark Irish streets this Christmas.”

Anyone who wishes can donate here

Thanks Yvonne Judge

    Glad to see people are not forgetting this and being subject to ‘crisis’ fatigue. You can be sure those on the streets or on the verge haven’t, thats for sure.
