Mothers’ Union Appeal

Request from Marlet Hunter, KEA Mothers’ Union Social Policy Contact:

Our 16 days of activism against gender-based violence will still be happening, but this year it will be on line.

This year again we are asking for donations for DVAS Sligo. Carmel from DVAS has suggested household items and kitchen-ware suitable for someone moving into a new home eg: bed linen, towels, tea towels (all should be new), crockery, cutlery, also games for children - jigsaws, board games, nothing noisy or battery operated.  Toiletries are always acceptable.

If you wish to donate something we will be opening St John’s Hall, John Street, on both Friday 20th and Saturday 21st November between 11am and 12 noon to receive items. Thank you!
