Brendan O'Carroll to feed 2,500 families on Christmas Day

Over 2,500 families in the greater Dublin area will have their turkey and ham on Christmas Day this year courtesy of Mrs Brown aka Brendan O'Carroll.

The comedian and creator of the phenomenally successful Mrs Brown's Boys has donated dinner to the East Region of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SVP) for distribution to families supported by the Society.

The President of the SVP East Region, Liam Casey has said, "The continuous generosity of Brendan is unbelievable. It is an imaginative yet practical way to help many families in need.

“Our volunteers know that the families who benefit from his generosity not only appreciate his action but take extra pleasure in knowing that it comes with the compliments of Mrs Brown, an iconic and internationally famous Dublin mother."

This isn’t the first year Brendan has made a substantial donation to SVP, he has been making donations to the organisation for a number of years.

So much so, he was named ‘National Philanthropist of the Year’ earlier this year for his consistent work with the SVP.
