Brendan O’Carroll (Mrs.Brown) to donate 2,500 Christmas dinners to St.Vincent de Paul

Brendan O’Carroll is to continue with his charitable donations this year by donating thousands of euro worth of food vouchers to the East Region of Society of St. Vincent de Paul. More than 2,500 families in Dublin and Kildare will be able to enjoy a Christmas dinner of turkey and ham thanks to the Mrs. Brown star.

The Finglas man is well known for his charity work, donating to the SVP for the last five years. In January 2015 he was named ‘National Philanthropist of the year’ by the Community Foundation of Ireland. O’Carroll has revealed that the charity has a special place in his heart, supporting his widowed mother and her 11 children in the 1960’s.  O’Carroll went public as a charitable donor in 2013 to encourage people to support charities.

Liam Casey, President of the SVP East Region described spoke of his gratitude:

“It is an imaginative yet practical way to help many families in need. Our volunteers know that the families who benefit from his generosity not only appreciate his action but take extra pleasure in knowing that it comes with the compliments of Mrs Brown, an iconic and internationally famous Dublin mother,” he said.

“With such a level of calls our resources are fully stretched and we welcome all donations, whether financial or in the form of goods which can either be distributed directly to those in need or sold in our Vincent shops. The Irish public have been extremely generous to the SVP in the past and we are dependent on them to continue their support into the future.” Casey added.
