Councillor Colly Kelly said
“The Trócaire Gift initiative is an excellent way this Christmas for people in Derry and Donegal getting a present for someone that can also help transform the lives of people in other parts of the world. I believe that this is a very worthwhile initiative and can be supported from as little as £5.00.
All too often in the rush towards Christmas people buy presents which in many cases are never opened or used. In a small way the money raised by the purchase of these gifts can change the lives of millions of people living in the world’s poorest countries.
I would like to congratulate Trócaire for all their efforts and help in emergencies and disasters that have affected many parts of world in the past twelve months .The work they carry out is invaluable.
