26 Nov 2021
Penny dinner poster list

Penny Dinners are holding their Annual Christmas Drive. We have a box located near the reception area of Western Gateway Building for donations which will be collected weekly.

Penny Dinners are holding their Annual Christmas Drive. This is an important part of their year as it will supply many people over the winter months. Penny dinners have acted as a valuable lifeline to so many people in Cork. First founded during the famine as a soup kitchen, they now offer hot meals and supplies for many people in Cork. Demand for their service has soared since the beginning of the Covid pandemic and they need your support more than ever.


We hope to have a great response to this campaign from all in UCC,
