"In true Marilyn style Mo modelled one of the two real diamond pendants to be found in Jack & Jill Candles this Christmas. The candles are made in Ireland by Celtic Candles and are available in two delicate fragrances - Red Dahlia or Coconut, Water and Lime," said the Jack & Jill Foundation.
"Every candle has a sparkling costume pendant in the base and two will have a real diamond pendant. Loyes Diamonds of Baggot Street, Dublin have generously donated two new necklaces, after the original diamonds were found by two lucky purchasers; one of whom was given the candle as a Christmas present last year. The candles are available for €19.95 on www.jackandjill.ie or in Jack & Jill Charity Boutiques in Naas, Newbridge and Crookstown."
Jack & Jill must raise €3.5 million annually to provide it's home nursing care and respite service and is reliant on the generosity of the public especially as the year comes to a close.
"There are many ways to support the charity with every €16 raised providing one hour of care and helping to keep sick children at home this Christmas. Jack & Jill currently cares for 12 children in Co. Kildare," it said.
