Riverside comes up trumps for SVP
The management at The Riverside Park Hotel decided to dispense with the tradition of giving out corporate gifts this Christmas, in favour of giving something to families and individuals in the local community who really need it most.
Hotel owner Colm Neville and Manager Jim Maher were delighted to hand over a cheque for €5,000 to St Vincent de Paul to try and provide some relief at what is their busiest time of year.
Tom Brennan, Sean Fogarty and Orla Harrington of St Vincent de Paul were present to collect the cheque and thanked Mr Neville for his generous donation, saying that it would go a long way towards helping with the substantial costs that the organisation bears at this time of year.
'It really is a wonderful charity,' said Mr Neville. 'We're delighted to be able to donate and help.'
