A large number of Christmas trees have been generously given to Mooncoin Boys’ School so as to provide us with the much needed opportunity to raise some money.
We will, therefore, be selling these beautiful pinewood lodge (non-shed) Christmas trees at the school on two dates: Monday December 7th and Monday December 14th. The trees will cost €15-€20 each. A sample tree will be available for viewing at the school during the first week of December. If you wish to order a tree please contact the school at 895411.
All profits from the sale of these trees will go to the school. Thank you.

The Foundation is a large provider of homes for the elderly. We support this from our shop in Ballybricken, Waterford. We are totally dependant on volunteers for our labour force, the generosity of donors for our stock.
We would appreciate any clothing, toys, books or furniture that may be surplus to your needs at the moment. If you have any query about a donation please ring the Waterford shop on 051-879425.
The is our seconds request and we want to express our thanks for the response we received for our last appeal.
