First South Credit Union were delighted to welcome Martin Boland – Conference Treasurer and Bridget Deane – Conference Secretary of the Christ King (Turners Cross/ Ballyphehane) branch of the Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP) to our offices in Friars Walk to present them with a cheque to assist in their Christmas appeal.
The Society’s main work is in home visitation by their volunteers. Local families and individuals who, through no fault of their own have fallen on hard times, are assisted by the Conference. They assist with their immediate needs and remain visiting them until their problems are alleviated.
The times of greatest need are bereavement, serious illness, Christmas, First Communion, Confirmation and Back to school expenses. All donations received are spent in the local Conference area.
