This is the story of a guide in Co. Westmeath that lights up their house every Christmas for charity. They raised over 160,000 this year for the share a dream foundation. But, they have announced that this will be the last year they do it. They said if they ever had to take money for the Esb bill from the donations(€160,000) box they would stop doing it. This year, businessrd did not pay for the esb bill so they had no choice to raid the donation box.
So, they appear in the papers today complaining about this and announcing they will not be lighting their house for charity again.
It doesn’t make sense some how. They spend €1,000 on electricity but take in €160,000 for their charity. Surely, a handsome profit?
I just don’t understand what the issue is or maybe there’s another reason for this?
