THERE WAS a very generous response to the launch of the Girl Guide Toy Appeal in conjunction with SVP at the Tree Lighting Ceremony.
Despite the weather, the local community turned up to support what is now a real Christmas treat, the arrival of Santa, the lighting of the tree and now of course the Girl Guide Toy Appeal.
Some of the girl guides, Eileen, Melissa, Saidbh and Carissa were there to receive the toys and were once again overwhelmed with the generosity within the community. It was a great start to the Toy Appeal will runs until December 16th, with depots in the local Centra, Vivo and Greengates stores.
Centra will once again match each toy given with a selection box. The Guides urge all in the community to support this worthy cause and encourage children to help others in need this Christmas.
Please don't forget for the teenagers the like of gift vouchers for HMV, Penneys, Mobile phone shops, Boots etc would be very welcome.
