Mayor of Clonmel/Cahir Borough District Martin Lonergan has launched this year’s Christmas Relief Fund.
He said with Christmas imminent, people are preparing to celebrate this occasion with their families and loved ones.
However, there are many in our communities who, in trying to provide for their families, are struggling to meet the additional costs associated with Christmas.
“To this end, and in the knowledge that we are all in difficult economic times, I am appealing to the people of the District to give what you can to this year’s Mayor’s Fund in order to make it a brighter Christmas for the needy in our towns and villages.
“The monies raised will be allocated to different charities in the Clonmel and Cahir Areas nominated by myself, in consultation, so that those who need support most will get that support”.
Donations can be sent to Mayor’s Christmas Fund Appeal, Tipperary County Council, Clonmel. Borough District, Civic Offices, Clonmel.
