“And although some SVP shops have had to close because of the lockdown the need is not only still there, it’s greater than ever.

“I went to visit a volunteer who told how deprived so many families are.

“It’s heartbreaking but SVP is still there to help.

“You can help too by changing your charity donations and supporting SVP online.”



He added, “A little will go a long way.”

Mary Waide, Regional President of SVP, added, “We are absolutely thrilled that Eamonn took the time to meet with SVP.

“I want to thank him for the interest he showed in the work that we are doing throughout local communities with families who have been devastated by the pandemic.

Mary added, “We are very grateful for his support.”
