KOINS FOR KIDS are having a bucket collection outside Tesco’s in Stillorgan Village this coming Saturday. Anybody out there who happens to be in the area on Saturday, your support would be greatly appreciated. Even just a friendly face or a smile. Peace and Love to All.

KOINS FOR KIDS is a small charity that Liam Duggan and Suzi Barret began a few years ago. They are collecting money in aid of the new Children’s Hospital to be built at St James’.

Suzi spends her weekends helping Liam on Grafton Street or Henry Street over the summer months. They are there involving the crowd and selling their lucky pennies in return for a euro.

“We are now selling pre decimal pennies as tokens at a price of one euro. I have seen these lucky pennies for sale on the internet in nice packaging for 10 to 16. They are a nice token like the daffodil on daffodil day. We have a source where we get these pennies and there are plenty of them available,” Liam also gets many donors bringing him old coins and new coins that they no longer want to hold onto, from all over the world.

“We are fundraising for the provision of whatever essential equipment is needed for the New Children’s Hospital, once it is built. In funding for the equipment we are making sure that the funds go directly to the innocent sufferer rather than the management or executive. As it stands we are putting all our fundraising efforts into the New Children’s Hospital, but we will direct our efforts elsewhere once this endeavor is complete, but still focusing on innocent sufferers. We have applied for a grant that the Dublin Bus are making available to community projects and are hoping to hear about this in August 2015.”
