The brainchild of the Love/Hate team and commissioned by the show’s producers and RTÉ, the blue santa hats will be sold at major retail outlets.
All profits will go to the Peter McVerry Trust and to SARI, two charities chosen by the Love/Hate team.
As a special Christmas treat for all the drama’s fans, and to mark the launch of the initiative, actor Peter Coonan — who stars as Fran in the series — will make personal appearances tomorrow in Golden Discs, Blanchardstown, from 11am until noon, and in Easons, Dundrum Town Centre, from 2.30pm to 3.30pm.
“I’m delighted to be involved in raising money for both of these fantastic charities, which are really worthy causes, and hope all Love/Hate fans support both the Peter McVerry Trust and SARI and have a Coola Boola Christmas,” the actor said.
The hats, which cost €4 each, will be available from today in all Tesco stores, Golden Discs, and Easons nationwide.
