No presents, said Thomas - donate to hospice instead!
THOMAS SMITH decided to take a pass on any presents for his 60th birthday - and instead asked all of his family and friends to make a donation to Wicklow Hospice.
So rather than splurge on presents, they instead managed to raise some €1,000.
Thomas, of Rathdrum, was able to present a cheque for the €1,000 in person to Bill Porter, who is a member of the Wicklow Hospice Committee.
'We all would like to thank Thomas, his friends and family for this great and generous donation,' said Bill.
