"We in the Supporters' Club are just a small group who support Longford Town FC but we wouldn't exist ourselves but for the incredible local generosity. So it's only right that we support the fabulous staff of St Joseph's who are doing outstanding work in these difficult times," explained Margaret Healion, hard working member of Longford Town Supporters' Club.

Margaret added, "It's just a small token on our behalf to show them that they're hugely appreciated in the local community. We decided to give the staff some healthy fruit, like strawberries, apples, pears, oranges etc but we added plenty of crisps and chocolate too to help their sugar levels!"
