The countdown is on to Sunday, December the 1st when local animal welfare charity TNR South Roscommon will host its annual Christmas sale at the Angling Centre, Athleague from 11 am to 4 pm.
This much-anticipated event will not only provide shoppers with the perfect opportunity to give something back to their community, it will also help them to enable and support this local charity in their efforts to raise much-needed funds which they use to humanely trap, spay/neuter and feed feral cats in County Roscommon.
The fair, which will feature handbags, fancy goods, costume jewellery and accessories, toys, beauty items and household goods, etc., will be guaranteed to deliver plenty of bargain buys for discerning shoppers.
In addition, the event will give families the opportunity to soak up the feelgood festive atmosphere with complimentary refreshments and a Christmas raffle being held on the day! The charity’s stall will be staffed by a team of dedicated volunteers who TNR South Roscommon’s founder Orla Hanley describes as being of “an invaluable help”.
“Our work would not be possible without the tender and faithful support of our volunteers and those who assist us to save and alleviate a whole lot of heartache in Roscommon’s feral cat population’s lives”.
Along with the opportunity to purchase that unique gift on December 1st and help a struggling local charity, TNR South Roscommon’s Christmas fundraiser will also serve to provide a family-friendly atmosphere with those dedicated volunteers on hand to offer shoppers advice regarding the care and welfare of the feral kitties they work so hard to help and protect.
Indeed, they can also provide information on how animal lovers who may be stuck for a unique gift idea can support them throughout the year by perhaps considering making a donation to the charity in someone’s name. Now wouldn’t that make a puuurrrfectly unique and sustainable gift for either a friend or a loved one?
As 2019 closes and the New Year hails the onset of the 2020 kitten season, the charity would like to thank all of those Roscommon People readers who continue to support them.
The TNR South Roscommon founder said: “On behalf of myself and all of our volunteers (and the innocent little lives we’ve saved), I would like to wrap a giant present of gratitude for everyone who has supported us and wish you all a happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year”.
