Newbridge's Judge Roy Beans looking for donations to help those in need this Christmas

Judge Roy Beans in Newbridge

Judge Roy Beans in Newbridge are looking for your donations to help those in need around the county this Christmas.

JRB’s have teamed up with ‘Christmas with Friends’, and will open on Christmas day to provide complimentary dinners to those who are alone or homeless around the festive season.

A Go Fund Me page has been set up to raise funds.

Marks and Spencers in Newbridge kindly donated €1000.

JRB’s Owner, Vivian Carroll, told the Leader that the plans stemmed from a staff meeting, where head chef Darren Lawlor put forward the idea.

“Generally it’s aimed at those who are on their own or homeless. We will open on Christmas day from 12-4pm. Staff have offered to come in and cook and serve, and we’ll feed whoever needs feeding. Hopefully we’ll have live music on the day.”

Vivian said they aim to deliver from 50 dinners to those who cannot make it in, and provide approximately 100 dinners in Judge Roy Beans on the day.

If you would like to reserve a place or to have dinner delivered to your home, call Anne at 086 8042724.

Christmas with Friends are looking for people who wish to be drivers on the day to deliver dinner to people in their homes, and to take people to and from the event, to contact them.
