RADIO Kerry’s annual county wide Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser for St Vincent de Paul will take place on Friday, December 11.

It is the seventh year of the fundraising initiative which to date has raised over €95,000.  The 2020 target is to achieve at least €15,000.

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