ONLY Santa’s beard is safe when festive fund-raising gets going.
It was a close shave for solicitor John O’Donohoe but he managed to get his beard trimmed in time for Christmas. The sponsored shave has raised funds for the Lions Club Christmas Hamper Appeal.
The razor was in the steady hands of Richard Hannigan of Richard Hannigan Hair Design, who hosted the event.
The Christmas Hamper Appeal is the biggest fundraiser for the Waterford Lions Club and all the money received is spent on providing food for the hampers.
This year 1,230 homes in the City and surrounding areas are to be the recipients of hampers distributed by the St. Vincent de Paul.
Among the fund raising events is the Christmas concert at 4pm on Saturday December 14 in the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, Barronstrand Street.
