It’s shoe box time again!

The parish of Kenagh has been supporting the Team Hope Christmas Shoe Box Appeal for the past six years. Despite Ireland’s own recession and austerity, as a community we have managed to give over 400 personal gift boxes and donations to children in need across the world. Each individual box is greatly appreciated and valued. Once again on behalf of the Team Hope we ask you for a little generosity and love to make a personal gift box that can be given directly into a child’s arms in time for Christmas. Please aim to have boxes with the local representatives before Monday, 10th November. Representatives for Kenagh are Liz and Tom Farrell, 4 Clough Dillons, Kenagh 086 8841367. Other drop off points St Dominics N/S St Dominics Church , St George’s Church, Stickey Fingers Childcare Centre & Parents & Toddler Group. Thank you for giving a smile at Christmas.
