100% of the proceeds raised through the WLR Christmas Appeal goes directly to the Saint Vincent de Paul in Waterford to support the society’s ongoing services across our City and County.
With your help, through a variety of events and initiatives we aim to raise in excess of €80,000 for the SVP in Waterford.
Some of our biggest events include the Waterford Warriors 24 Hour Row and Wear Red Day, and new for 2018 is the Giving Grid. By selling every square on the Giving Grid, from €1-€200, WLR will raise in excess of €20,000 for the Saint Vincent de Paul in Waterford.
THE GIVING GRID
Every time you choose a square and make a donation, you have a 1 in 10 chance of winning a prize to the value of your donation; including flights from Cork Airport, meal vouchers, helicopter flights, luxury fashions and homewares and festive stocking fillers. Simply click on the square you’d like to buy and choose the corresponding value from the list behind the grid. Fill in your details as prompted and you’ll own that square on the Giving Grid. You can even have your photo or company logo published in that square!
Once the grid is full, it will be printed in an upcoming edition of the Waterford News & Star, as well as here on WLRFM.com and ChristmasAppeal.ie.
The money you donate to the WLR Christmas Appeal go directly to the SVP in Waterford so they can continue to provide the services that help people to have a better life. The serviced provided not only include financial assistance for food, bills, rent, fuel and electricity where necessary, but also, towards the services that support people in making a better life for themselves and their families. These services including providing childcare so parents can get back to work without the burden of crippling childcare costs, and assistance with funding for school and college. We want to help the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul break the poverty cycle in Waterford long term.
