Over the last few years, the Purple Raven Gallery in Crowenstown has arranged a collection of non perishable foods for the Midlands Simon Community. Once again, the gallery will be acting as a drop off point this November.
In addition, this year they are are also going to collect food items for sick and hungry hedgehogs! Tins of cat food and dry, poultry flavoured food will be sent to Hedgehog Rescue Dublin who take care of sick and orphaned hedgehogs in Meath and Westmeath.
So for the next few weeks, please keep these two causes in mind when you are out shopping. The generosity of people in the past has been incredible and Hazel hopes that this year will be the same again.
