We would like to thank Ian Stapleton (Stone oven Bistro) for setting up a Go Fund Me page to assist the service and to everybody that donated so generously to this page. We would like to thank Limerick Island Community Partners (St Marys Aid) for providing the meals.

Seamus Enright and the Limerick Redemptorists Community, Rev Niall Sloane and Limerick City Parish, Hospital Family Resource, Ballyhoura Development and Macra Na Feirme. None of this would have been possible without our Volunteer drivers and the Red Cross who gave and continue to give their time so generously. We would like to wish our customers and volunteers a safe and Happy New Year.
