Stage Set for Radio Kerry SVP Christmas Jumper Day 2021

The eighth annual Radio Kerry Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser for St Vincent de Paul, in association with Garvey’s SuperValu will take place on Friday, December 10th 2021.

Over the past seven years the generosity of individuals, school communities and businesses across the county has led to over €120,000 being raised, every cent of which goes to assist the work of St. Vincent de Paul in Kerry.

The 2021 event will once again be kindly supported by Garvey’s SuperValu, Tralee, Listowel, Castleisland and Dingle where collection points will be available in each store for anyone wishing to donate.

Covid-19 Friendly FUNdraising

Christmas Jumper Day is happily a Covid19 friendly FUNdraising event! It is built on encouraging everyone to take part in their own local environment simply by wearing a Christmas Jumper.

Then simply share a photo or video via social media, email, text and WhatsApp and make a donation to the St Vincent De Paul.

Private individuals, families, school and university students, teachers, lecturers and administration teams, colleagues in small, medium and large enterprises – whether working from the office or home can all participate.

Think Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, Tik Tok! Register to let us know you are taking part in Radio Kerry Christmas Jumper Day 2021.
