A CHEQUE for €58, 466 was handed over to the Peter McVerry Trust recently, the proceeds of a gala night in Killashee House on 5 December.
Presenting the funds Jackie Lavin from the local charity fundraising committee for the Kildare homeless said :”We had great support from a huge number of Kildare companies without whom it would not be possible to raise such an amount.”
Pat Doyle CEO of Peter McVerry Fund said:“These funds are vital and will allow us to expand our services in Kildare and house more families in our Athy and Prosperous locations as well as opening additional rooms in Naas.
“We are really great full for the support of Jackie Lavin and her committee Sheila Zebedee, Aoifa Brophy, Jenni Skelton, Aileen Morrin and Atracta Mongey who continually raise funds for Peter McVerry Kildare Fund. We look forward to working with them on another event again this year.”
