The charity Trocaire has thanked local people for supporting its Lenten campaign and has urged them to return their collection boxes.

Kevin Donnelly, Trocaire’s regional manager in Northern Ireland, said, “Co Armagh schools, individuals, parishes and businesses like High Street Mall in Portadown have been incredibly supportive of Trocaire this Lent, from taking Trocaire boxes into their homes to displaying information or welcoming speakers from Trocaire to share information and stories about the people and communities at the heart of the six-week campaign.”

He reminded people that every pound donated to the campaign in Northern Ireland will be matched by the UK government, and will help people in developing countries.
