On the first Tuesday of every month we will be donating our entire day’s takings to a charity chosen by the public. We have a survey open to anyone to vote for a charity of their choice. The vote closes the day before the ‘Chooseday’ and the charity with the most votes receives the full donation.

In fairness.

The sweet jar contains donations for a local 93-year-old lady who last week was robbed of her Xmas rent money.

The shopkeeper told us she is loved and known by everybody in the area as a seamstress, with people always knocking at her door for alterations.

Two men pretending to be there to clean gutters took her double Xmas rent money she had just collected & some extra cash….

I shaved my head this weekend to raise money for Cliona’s Foundation, above is a very short (46 sec) video of the event, it would be great if you could feature it on Broadsheet to help raise awareness for this great charity that helps Irish families with sick or injured children.

I donated the hair to The Little Princess Trust who make wigs for children who are suffering from hair loss.
