Jedward start charity's new campaign that has twin aims
'X Factor' twins Jedward were on hand to launch a campaign calling for more donations for St Vincent de Paul.
The Lucan duo were at the SVP shop on Sean McDermott Street in Dublin's north inner city, as the charity looks to get more people involved.
The latest campaign - called 'Donate with style, volunteer with passion' - has twin aims of attracting donations to its network of 220 shops nationwide, and to encourage more people to volunteer.
Around 130,000 people sought help from SVP last year.
The shops contribute about €35m annually, which goes directly to helping those in need.
