ST Vincent de Paul are appealing to the public to drop in any clothes they can spare to their shops in Castles Street and Friary Lane.

The appeal comes as they revealed there is still a big demand for their services and this is likely to increase as Christmas approaches.

“The seasons have changed and if people are putting away their summer clothes, they might think instead of putting them into a bag and giving them to us,” said Junior Locke of St Vincent de Paul in Tralee, who also appealed for any winter clothes people have to spare.

“There is a massive demand on the services. Our shops are extremely busy which is down also to the quality of stuff we are receiving. Without the support of the public, we would not be able to deliver the vital services to the people who need it,” said Junior.

“Our main work is visitation to people’s homes to see what they need. Food and fuel are our priorities for them. We see in the past few weeks people are┬ástarting to struggle with paying for fuel,” he said.

They are also appealing for volunteers in the shops and training is provided by SVP. The society will also hold a fundraising fashion show on November 17 in the Ballyroe Heights Hotel at 7.30pm.
