Call For Public To Support Radio Kerry Christmas Jumper Day

Posted by


THE eighth annual Radio Kerry Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser for St Vincent de Paul will take place on Friday, December 10, 2021.

Over the past seven years the generosity of individuals, school communities and businesses across the county has led to over €120,000 being raised, every cent of which goes to assist the work of St Vincent de Paul in Kerry.

Christmas Jumper Day is happily a Covid19 friendly fundraising event.  It is built on encouraging everyone to take part in their own local environment simply by wearing a Christmas Jumper.

Then simply share a photo or video via social media, email, text and WhatsApp and make a donation to the St Vincent De Paul.

Private individuals, families, school and university students, teachers, lecturers and administration teams, colleagues in small, medium and large enterprises – whether working from the office or home can all participate.

Speaking at the launch of the Radio Kerry Christmas Jumper Day 2021, Paddy Kevane, President of The Society of St. Vincent de Paul Kerry, said; “2020 Jumper Day raised an unprecedented €25,000.  We are so grateful to everyone who participated and donated. Once again we appeal to the people of Kerry to get involved on December 10th and help us to help fellow Kerry people who are facing a very difficult Christmas”.

Donations may be made directly to the St Vincent de Paul Kerry bank account, their shops around the county or to Radio Kerry.

Online donations can be made via Radio Kerry Jumper Day and a dedicated phone line for donations (066) 712 8021 (Extension 1) with 100% of the money going to St Vincent de Paul Kerry.

The money raised via Christmas Jumper Day is used to fund a number of St Vincent de Paul projects right across Kerry including Christmas food hampers, Santa gifts for children who are homeless and in direct provision, Christmas Day Meals on Wheels and the Kerry Education Fund.

St Vincent de Paul operate a donation centre in Tralee and eight stores across their Conference areas in Tralee, Castleisland, Listowel, Killorglin, Killarney, Dingle, Kenmare and Abbeyfeale.
