Christmas Hampers appeal

This December we asked players, members, associates and their families and friends to donate food to make food hampers for residents in Hazelwood House in Portobello. We got such a huge response from you all that not only did we make 17 hampers and a bag of goodies for each resident, we also donated a number of boxes of food to Rathmines Women’s Refuge.

Thanks to all of you for donating, and to our Christmas elves for helping to make the hampers last Saturday. Merry Christmas all!
