Video: Jedward lend support to St Vincent de Paul campaign


POP duo Jedward have visited a Belfast St Vincent de Paul shop to show their support for a new campaign for the charity.

Called “Donate with Style, Volunteer with Passion” the campaign, which will run through October, aims to attract donations to its network of 32 shops throughout Northern Ireland and to recruit volunteers.

Approximately 130,000 people sought help from St Vincent de Paul last year.

Speaking at the launch of the campaign today, Dermot McGilloway, SVP National Retail Development Manager, said: “We urgently need clean saleable clothes that can be distributed throughout our network of shops, men and women’s clothing, winter wear and large sizes are particularly welcome.”

“We also need clean bed linen, curtains, pairs of shoes, bric-a-brac, pictures, antiques, collectables and small household items. Some shops can also accommodate furniture.” 

Mr McGilloway also said the charity needs volunteers for all shops across Northern Ireland.
