With an ambitious target of £20,000, this charity, which has spent over 20 years supporting the older Irish population of London, is launching their appeal on St Patrick’s Day 2017. They are hosting two big events on the day, a lunch for older people in the St Thomas Moore Church, Manor House, and an evening ‘musical extravaganza’, hosted for the charity by the well-known Mondegreen Folk Club and Ryan’s Bar in Stoke Newington.

The charity will be launching events throughout the country, hoping to involve people, young and old, in a series of hundreds of events, small and large, raising money to help older Irish emigrants live great lives, and get help and support with housing, ill-health, and any other difficulties when they need it. From jumble sales, to cake sales, to sponsored runs, to sponsored trad sessions, the charity is welcoming all ideas. You can find more information about how to get involved by visiting their website, emailing or phoning 02074280471.
