The international development charity, Concern Worldwide (Concern) would like to thank the local community for the generosity shown during its recent street collection in Newry city centre on Saturday 25th May. A total of £228.88 was raised.

Amy McKeown, Community and Events Assistant said, “I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped us reach this total, including our wonderful volunteers who helped out on the day.

“Even with the economic downturn, the pressure of family budgets and the increasing demands on local charities, responding to the needs of the poorest people in the world remains a priority for local people and this is clearly evident from the amount raised last month.”

“Concern Worldwide is an international humanitarian organisation dedicated to tackling poverty and suffering in the world’s poorest countries.

“We work in partnership with the very poorest people in these countries, directly enabling them to improve their lives, as well as using our knowledge and experience to influence decisions made at a local, national and international level that can significantly reduce extreme poverty,” Amy added.
