In a year in which we are slowly getting back to normal, it is very pleasing to report that the Wicklow SPCA has received an increase in our Departmental Grant from €75,000 to €118,000. This is a welcome early Christmas present and reflects the hard work of all in the Society and the esteem in which it is held.

Equally this is down to our valued staff and a very big thank you is due to Anne, Linda and T.J. for getting us through the ups and downs of 2022.

To all the staff, volunteers, our friends and supporters, I send very best wishes for a Happy Christmas and the hope that 2023 is a better and happier year for everyone.
