Staff at the Credit Union in Portarlington did a very kind deed ahead of the Christmas season.
The staff decided to set up a payroll deduction to raise funds for local organisations.
They managed to raise €838 and they presented two cheques each worth €419 to two deserving local groups.
The Lourdes Invalid Committee and the Portarlington Garda Youth Diversion Programme both benefited from the donations.
The staff hope to make the fundraiser and annual Christmas event.
