Christmas is not the same for everyone is the message from SVP

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVP) expects 50,000 families to seek its help over the winter months.

The generous support of the public is so important for those we help each year at Christmas”, said SVP National President Kieran Stafford at the launch of the Society’s Annual Appeal by RTE’s Ryan Tubridy today (15 November 2017).

In the run-up to Christmas the SVP Annual Appeal message this year is “Christmas is not the same for everyone.”
