Trocaire has thanked the people of Larne for supporting its 2013 Lenten campaign through the Trocaire box and is reminding people that boxes can be returned from now on.
“I would like to thank everyone from Co. Antrim who has taken a Trocaire box into their homes,” said Eithne McNulty, director of Trocaire in Northern Ireland.
“The incredible fundraising efforts and generosity of people across the country is making an extraordinary contribution to changing the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.”
“Catholic parishes across Co Antrim will gladly accept returned Trocaire boxes from no onwards,” said Ms. McNulty.
“I would ask anyone who has a Trocaire box at home or in work to kindly drop it back to their local parish and we can start putting these generous donations into action.”
Donations to Trocaire can also be made by logging on to www.trocaire.org or calling 0800 912 1200.
