FOOD hampers are being stocked at the St Vincent de Paul depot in Monavalley, as families face a huge financial impact in the weeks and months ahead.

Junior Locke of St Vincent de Paul said many people were paid up by employers up to the next two weeks, but after that their incomes will be severely curtailed and they are expecting a huge rise in demand for their services.

A team of volunteers have been working hard at the centre to make up the hampers which will be ready to go when the demand arises.

While the shops in Castle Street and Friary Lane are closed to the public, people can still make clothes donations at their ‘clothes banks’ at the centre.

Junior said many people might be clearing out their wardrobes at this time and to bear the charity in mind if they are getting rid of clothes.

SVP Volunteers and Meals on Wheels is active and they will continue to assist people. The service  has been expanded to seven days a week to cope with demand and they have received support from chefs in the area who are now working on a rota system for the charity. If you would like to avail of the service, call (066) 712 8021 or email
