Care and Repair and Christmas FM
Age Action was selected as the 2014 Charity Partner for Christmas FM, the hugely popular charity radio station which broadcasts for a month during the festive season.
As part of the campaign Christmas FM broadcasted 30 heartfelt stories from the service users and volunteers of the Care and Repair programme throughout the month. The response from the public was truly amazing.
The appeal to support the Care and Repair programme resonated with over 13,000 people who donated over €108,000 by text, phone and online.
