Irish Examiner launches annual charity initiative to raise funds for St Vincent de Paul

The Irish Examiner has launched its Christmas Charity initiative in aid of St Vincent de Paul (SVP).

On Saturday, December 21, 20c from every newspaper sold will be donated to SVP.

Karen O’Donoghue, Marketing Manager at the Irish Examiner, said: "We are delighted to support St Vincent de Paul again this year, a charity who provide invaluable and worthwhile support to people in need."

Explaining this year’s campaign Ms O’Donoghue said: "We all have special memories of Christmas past, a time when the little things mean the most.

"We know that together little things can amount to something so much bigger, that’s why we’re donating 20c from every copy of the Irish Examiner sold on Saturday, December 21 to St Vincent de Paul."

Gerry Garvey, South West Regional Co-ordinator, Society of St Vincent de Paul, added: "We are delighted that the Irish Examiner is working with St Vincent de Paul again this year.

"The initiative will be of great benefit to families and individuals who otherwise might face a winter of emptiness - no food, no fuel for fire, no books for school.

"The monies raised will be used to help these people through the coming winter months."
