Annual festive fundraiser, Josie’s Xmas Lights, and Lidl Ireland have announced that together they have raised more than €5,000 in public donations over the festive period for youth mental health charity, Jigsaw.
In December, Lidl Ireland partnered with Crumlin-based, Josie’s Xmas Lights, pledging to double the amount raised through public donations bringing the total raised to €10,770.
Dublin native, Josie Leonard, has been supporting local charities through her lights display for eight years now with this year being the most successful by far.
Commenting on the success of this years fundraiser, Josie was grateful for the great outpouring of support from the public.
“I am always blown away by people’s kindness and this year is no exception,” she said.
“It’s been a challenging year for everyone, especially for young people so I am very pleased that we have been able to join forces with Lidl Ireland and Jigsaw to support them, particularly as we head into another lockdown.
“We’ve been doing this for the past 8 years now and with the year that’s been in it, we didn’t know what to expect so as you can imagine, we are absolutely amazed!”
