Sincere thanks

Sincere thanks to everyone in the Millstreet  locality and surrounding areas that make this fantastic homeless hamper appeal in conjunction with Maureen O Sullivan and Simon community..
We had the ladybirds and brownies in Boherbue who made it their charity this year to support, big thanks to Abina in Boherbue educare for all her donations from famililes attending the creche, Hannah  and Jerry in O Regan’s Mill for facilitating a drop off point for Millstreet Town and Denis and Susan of Anglands shop for also facilitating a drop-off point for DROMTARIFFE Area.. To the ladies who  had hand knit hat and gloves sets, so beautiful and warm, also the lady who donated homemade jam to this appeal. To Mrs. Murphy who got the 3rd and 4 Th class students  of Presentation Girls School to make homemade Christmas cards, they were so beautiful and will probably be the only cards they receive in 2018.
Five carloads left Millstreet full to the brim so we are truly blown away by everyone’s generosity.
Any extra bits that we don’t need on the night are passed on to Edel house Cork, Penny Dinners, Sli Eile in Churchtown, St.Theresas recovery Center in Blarney.
