Laois Partnership Company organised a Christmas Party in the Montague Direct Provision Centre and it was a great success. The Mountmellick Men’s Shed Choir provided wonderful entertainment. There was a great surprise for all the children when a special request to the North Pole meant a visit from Santa. A huge thanks to Rath NS School and Parents Council for providing funding for presents for the children and refreshments. Thanks also to the Centre Management for the super venue and funding for refreshments and prizes for the free raffle.
