Clare Red Cross seeking support during COVID-19

in Covid-19/Home/News by

THE Clare Branch of the Irish Red Cross are urgently seeking the public’s support to help them continue their vital work.

The Red Cross are not able to fundraise due to the current Covid-19 government restrictions, but they are still providing support services in the community and assisting the HSE where required.

“This means that a time we have some of our highest expenses to aid our community we have our lowest income of funds. We need your support at this time to keep our community and medical services on the road,” a spokesperson for the Clare branch of Irish Red Cross said.

They have set up a go fund me page to help them through this tough time and are appealing to the people of Clare to donate what they can.
