Poll: Do you have a Trócaire box in the house?

It was once in almost every household in Ireland over Lent – on the charity’s 40th anniversary, we ask: Is the Trócaire box something you still use?

THE IRISH CHARITY Trócaire is marking its 40th anniversary in operation this year.

While it is now just one of several Irish charities involved in projects in the developing world, it is fair to say that the ‘Trócaire box’ has long been a high-profile fundraising device every Lent. But is the Trócaire box as prevalent in households around Ireland as it once was?

Do you have a Trócaire box in your home?

Poll Results:

No, but it used to be a tradition (1496)
No, but I never did (1363)
Yes (410)
I'm not familiar with the Trócaire box campaign (274)
