As part of our Teamworking project we decided to support the Simon Community in the South East for Christmas. We set up a Facebook page asking for donations of warm clothes and toiletries and received donations at the centre. We were delighted with the response; we received 10 bags of clothes and 2 bags of toiletries.
We also took to the streets of Bunclody with collection buckets. Various businesses gave us donations as well. We collected the grand total of €372. All of this was loaded up and delivered to Simon’s head office in Waterford. They were delighted with all of it and they sent us a lovely letter of thanks. It was a very worthwhile experience. We were glad we could help such a worthy cause.
