iCare spreads Christmas cheer by delivering presents to 378 homeless children
11th January 2019
With a real desire in our hearts to help make a difference to the ongoing homelessness crisis in Ireland, iCare launched the ‘iCare at Christmas’ appeal with the aim of helping nearly 400 homeless and disadvantaged children enjoy Christmas by ensuring they had a present to open on Christmas morning.
Christmas is a time for giving and goodwill and we saw people’s overwhelming generosity and support for the iCare appeal. The ‘iCare at Christmas’ appeal raised an amazing £2230, which was match funded by iCare from the proceeds raised from last year’s Santa’s Gatelodge for a grand total of £4460!
iCare would like to take this opportunity to say thank you again to everyone who donated, our HCIL staff, business partners, local businesses, community groups and all our friends.
Based in Milford, Co. Armagh iCare is a charity dedicated to improving the lives of people and their families through simple acts of kindness. Since its inception in 2010, the volunteer led charity has raised over £325,000 and delivered more than 330 iCare Wishes to individuals and groups across Ireland.
