'Black Santa' appeal to help charities for the homeless
Dublin's homeless charities will be the focus of this year's 'Black Santa' appeal.
St Vincent de Paul, Dublin Simon and the Peter McVerry Trust are just some of the organisations to benefit from carol singing and fundraising outside St Ann's Church on Dawson Street this Christmas.
The appeal has raised over €400,000 for various charities over 15 years. Last year, it raised a record-breaking €35,000.
The 'sit-out' will take place outside St Ann's from tomorrow until Christmas Eve, from 10am to 6pm.
