The Galaxy Band Longford, supported by County Longford Youth Service and Music Generation Longford, wrote and composed a Christmas song this year to add a bit of Christmas spirit to the year. They have set up a ‘Go Fund Me Page’ dedicated to raise funds for Longford CASA, a most deserving charity in Longford. Longford CASA provides a monthly social outlet to adults with physical and intellectual disabilities throughout the county. They also take part in the annual CASA pilgrimage to Lourdes every year. CASA Longford is 100% voluntary run and relies mostly on fundraising.
