As winter sets in and the festive season approaches, it’s easy to forget about the many families who rely on the generosity of others to make Christmas special for their children.
Many of the families Barnardos work with struggle, particularly at Christmas, having to choose between heating their home and putting food on the table and a number of the children often have to go to bed in their coats to stay warm.
For this reason we are asking supporters to join Iconic Health Clubs in providing items such as food vouchers or warm and cosy character bedding or pyjamas to ensure the children have fun and stay healthy this Christmas.
By adding the Barnardos Toy Appeal to your shopping list you can reach out to these families and help make a child’s Christmas wish come true.
Iconic Health Clubs will also be incorporating the delivery of the items as part of our Christmas support. It will be to a Dublin project so it will be going to local families who need our help.
The charity asks that all gifts are new and unwrapped and we have put together a handy gift guide below, to help participants to choose age-appropriate toys and gifts. You simply need to pop your pressie under our tree in the club.
