€5,000 raised for Senior Citizens
ALMOST €5000 was collected recently throughout Avoca, Conary and Rathdrum through the support of local business, members of the public and the Avoca Recycling Centre, in aid of Senior Citizens.
With a number of charity buckets stationed across the region and an account at the local Credit Union there was no excuse not to support the fund which saw money donated to pay for a Christmas party for the Senior Citizens.
With the support of Mylie and his team at the Avoca Recycling Centre, who run a second hand book store the scheme was run with the help of Wicklow County Council and organisers say that without their hard work such an impressive sum could not have been raised.
The Senior Citizens was this year’s local charity selected by the organising committee to benefit from the project which sees donations accepted in exchange for books collected at the Recycling Centre.
