Give Together raises €28,000

By Esther Hayden

Hundreds of families across Wexford benefited from the St Vincent de Paul and Bank of Ireland Give Together programme last month.

Staff across the seven branches of Bank of Ireland in Wexford partnered with the local St Vincent de Paul in the run up to Christmas as part of the Bank's nationwide Give Together campaign raising over €28,000.

Give Together is Bank of Ireland's charity and community initiative, and the Bank coordinated a nationwide fundraising and volunteering effort to support St Vincent de Paul. All funds raised and items donated by the Wexford staff was distributed locally by St Vincent de Paul.

SVP National President Geoff Meagher said: 'The calls for assistance remain stubbornly high, twice what they were five years ago. Consequently, funds to provide assistance to so many families, particularly at this time, of year are badly needed.'
