Barnardos appeal to find owner as large sum of money found in donated curtains

A LARGE sum of money has been found in a pair of curtains donated to Barnardos.

The money was pinned inside in the lining of the curtains donated to children’s charity Barnardos in Rathmines.

The sum has not been disclosed but it is understood to be in the “thousands.”

The charity wants to locate the woman who donated the curtains last Wednesday.

Director of Marketing and Fundraising at Barnardos Ruth Gui said the charity is keen to speak to the women in question.

She added that the woman, who was not a regular customer, may not have been aware that the money was in the curtains.

“We're keen to let her know that it was in the curtains and if she could drop back into the shop, so we can reunite her with the cash,” she said
