The Salvation Army's work in supporting vulnerable families in the Republic of Ireland has been recognised by one of the country's leading companies.
Virgin Media Ireland was so impressed by the support given to people experiencing homelessness in Dublin that it has donated 70 tablets to help families.
The donation came about after Salvation Army support worker Eoghan Gilroy took part in an initiative called Open Call - which was organised by Trinity College Dublin and Young Social Innovators to highlight the impact of the coronavirus crisis on young people's education.
As result, Virgin Media Ireland offered to help The Salvation Army by donating the tablets for young people in homelessness services.
Eoghan said: "We are grateful to Virgin Media Ireland for their support, which will make a big difference to the lives of children and young people in the families we work with."
