Lenten Lunches, has, for the past 12 years been one of DHAs biggest annual fundraisers, raising over 20k annually in the past number of years. Again, thanks to everybody for their support for Lenten Lunches and DHA, your generosity over the years is very much appreciated and none more so than this year

St Peters (Church of Ireland), Parish Hall, Peters St, Drogheda was running their 12th year Leneten Lunches of a series of lunches in the Aid of Drogheda Homeless Aid.

Huge thanks to all involved in the organisation of this year's Lenten Lunches, particularly Clive and Pam Bagnall, to their team of volunteers, all sponsors and to St. Peter's CoI. Thanks to all members of the public who gave so generously and who financially supported the lunches this year and over the past 11 years.

Unfortunately, Lenten Lunches was unable to continue this year and was cut short prior to the lockdown for the health and safety of all concerned. Despite having to curtail activity mid-way through the series of Lenten Lunches, DHA received a whopping €13,530 this morning.

This financial support is key to us in delivery of vital services in these testing times.
