The continued generosity of Brendan O’Carroll, his wife Jenny and the Brown/O’Carroll families will ensure that over 2,800 families in Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow will have their turkey and ham on Christmas Day this year.
In 2016, Brendan and Jenny again made a very substantial donation to the Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP) on behalf of everyone involved in Mrs Brown’s Boys. As a result, vouchers for a Christmas dinner are once more being distributed in the SVP East Region to families supported by the Society.
Liam Casey, President of the SVP East Region said the tremendous generosity of Mrs. Brown’s Boys means that many families who might have missed out on the traditional Christmas meal will not be disappointed.
“We have seen an increase in requests for food this year and these vouchers will make a huge difference to many families. The vouchers, signed Brendan, Jenny and all the Brown and O’Carroll families also make the vouchers themselves special.” said Liam Casey.
Calls for support to the SVP in the East Region are continuing to be received at record levels, despite the improvement in sections of the economy. This year the Region will once again have dealt with over 65,000 calls for help before the year is over.
"The Irish public have been extremely generous to the SVP in the past through their financial donations and we are dependent on them to continue their support into the future." said Liam Casey.
