Age Action is calling on people across county Wexford to help with the charity's national collection on Saturday, June 13.
Age Action volunteers will be collecting at the Tesco stores in Gorey, New Ross and Wexford Town.
Daragh Matthews of Age Action said: 'The national collection is one of our biggest fundraisers this year and could raise tens of thousands of euro to fund the services we provide for older people.
'To make it a success, we need volunteers to help with the collection outside Tesco stores across Ireland and I'm making a special appeal to people in Wexford to help our senior citizens by taking part in our National Collection.'
Last year, Age Action carried out more than 24,000 DIY jobs and befriending visits to older people across the country. The charity also provided one-to-one computer training to more than 3,000 older people as part of its award-winning Getting Started Programme and maintains a helpline providing information on services and entitlements.
Anyone who wants to get help out with the collection can long onto www.ageaction.ie or by phoning Daragh at 01 475-6989.
