Scartaglen Childcare Centre is donating gloves, sanitiser and disposable aprons to the Castleisland Homecare Services.

Essential Service Providers

“We are looking to ask other childcare centres, hairdressers and beauty salons to do likewise if they have any of these items which they can afford to give,” said centre spokesperson, Maureen McAdam.

Elderly and Vulnerable Adults
“Our home help carers are an essential service to the mainly elderly and vulnerable adults in our community.
“We are happy to collect and pass on any donation of the above items,” said Maureen.
