Funnyman Brendan O’Carroll is proving once more what a good heart he has by teaming up with St.Vincent De Paul (SVP) to feed 2,500 Irish for Christmas.
The Mrs Browns Boys star is renowned for his generosity, and has donated thousands of euros and food vouchers to SVP over the past number of years, claiming the charity saved his own family in their time of need.
This year is no different, and 2,500 families in Dublin and Kildare will sit down to a traditional festive dinner of turkey and ham thanks the comedian.
This year, Brendan was named as ‘National Philanthropist of the year’ by the Community Foundation of Ireland, for his consistent work with SVP.
The 59-year-old decided to go public as a charitable donor in 2013 so that his fans would be encouraged to support similar charities, and Liam Casey, President of the SVP East Region, described his kindness “unbelievable”.
“It is an imaginative yet practical way to help many families in need,” he said. “Our volunteers know that the families who benefit from his generosity not only appreciate his action but take extra pleasure in knowing that it comes with the compliments of Mrs Brown, an iconic and internationally famous Dublin mother.”
