Inaugural bag-packing took place in M&S, Grafton Street on 4th Dec 2009. The Green and the LPPU Committee supplied the bag-packers. It was hard work but generated plenty of goodwill and interest in the work of the Union. €2500 was raised and we hope to repeat the event.

The annual Carol Singing took place on 10th December in Grafton Street. Enthusiastic singers were provided by The Green, Foxrock and Dalkey. Dalkey almost convinced Michael Bublé to join in!! The Doorman from Brown Thomas got a fantastic reception when he provided a very nice chair for Sr Marion at her keyboard. Great fun was had by all. Just under €3000 was raised.

The event was in aid of a number of charities, including the St. Vincent De Paul and the Homeless Girls Society.
