Every year the young girl guides of St Aidans Guides in Wexford, as part of their yearly programme, donate their time or money to a deserving local charity.

This year both the junior guides (aged from 10 to 14 years) and the Ranger Guides (aged from 15 to 17 years) decided themselves to do something for the homeless in Wexford.

During November the Guides created dozens of packs of essential items that included toiletries, gloves, hats, scarfs, and socks ready for delivery to the homeless.

On December 6, the Ranger Guides presented Wexford Women's Refuge with a number of these packs.

On Monday, December 12, the Junior Guides followed suit when they handed over more essential packs to elected members and housing staff at Wexford County Council Offices for delivery to the hostel for homeless men at Ozanam House.
