Trocaire Has Launched An Urgent Appeal For The People Of Cork To Return Donations From Their Trocaire Boxes

Donations can be made online or over the phone

The charity is reporting a 60% decline in donations to its Lenten Appeal due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Lenten Appeal is the charity's biggest fundraising campaign every year, however this year's efforts have been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, with supporters unable to return their Trócaire boxes due to ongoing restrictions.

Last year, over 310,000 euro was raised in Cork alone, with two-thirds of this money raised using Trocaire boxes in schools and parishes across the county.
