IT’S raised almost €50,000 for St Vincent de Paul over the past few years, so everyone is encouraged to get the Christmas jumper out to help families in need this festive season.

Radio Kerry’s third annual Christmas Jumper Day will take place on Friday, December 15 and Junior Locke of St Vincent de Paul is delighted the radio station is holding the day again.

“Last year it raised around €15,000 for St Vincent de Paul in Kerry, we really appreciate the support the Radio Kerry has given us. These fundraisers are a big help to us. The great thing is schools, big companies, anyone can get involved and it’s fun thing to do to kickstart the run in to Christmas,” he said.
