Huge sup­port given to on­line ap­peal

FACE­BOOK AP­PEAL SAVES CHRIST­MAS

Bray People - - FRONT PAGE - MARY FOG­A­RTY

CHRIST­MAS was saved for a num­ber of fam­i­lies in need thanks to the gen­eros­ity of the peo­ple of Bray.

It started with an on­line ap­peal on De­cem­ber 23 look­ing for help for one needy fam­ily in Bray. By Christ­mas Eve so much had been col­lected that 14 other fam­i­lies re­ceived de­liv­er­ies of toys, clothes, food and gifts.

‘I have come across a fam­ily in sheer des­per­a­tion with four young chil­dren that need our help,' said Cllr John Brady on Face­book. The mes­sage spread like wild­fire.

Kil­coole woman Anne Marie Greene put the ap­peal up on her own page and be­gan driv­ing around north county Wicklow col­lect­ing do­na­tions.

‘ The gen­eros­ity was in­cred­i­ble,' said Anne Marie.
