A NORTHSIDE business got into the Christmas spirit early when it announced a very generous fundraising campaign  that will benefit the local RNLI crew in 2018. 

Skerries RNLI volunteers visited Jimmy’s Take Away and Pizzeria in the town to hear about the plans for 2018.  

As well as being the owner and manager of Jimmy’s Take Away and Pizzeria in Skerries Point, Jimmy is well known in the town for his spectacular aerial and landscape photography. 

As he spends a lot of his time near the coast capturing his images, Jimmy is very aware of the work that the lifeboat volunteers do and wanted to do something to help Skerries RNLI continue saving lives at sea. 

After some brainstorming he came up with a plan to donate 50c for every single meal deal sold for an entire year. 

Speaking about the fundraising campaign, Lifeboat Press Officer for Skerries RNLI, Gerry Canning, said the RNLI is funded entirely by voluntary contributions, and they have a team of fundraisers working really hard behind the scenes to keep things moving. 

“It’s really appreciated when people from the community approach us to offer their support,” said Mr Canning. 

“Jimmy is well known around Skerries, not just for his great food and excellent photography, but for his community spirit. 

“He is always looking for a way to give back to the community and this is just another example of his generosity.”
