THE ‘ Give a Gift’ cam­paign for St Vincent de Paul with East Coast FM will en­sure that peo­ple with lit­tle else will get some­thing for Christ­mas this year.

Not ev­ery­one will get a present this, or any year and the cam­paign is to help bring a lit­tle hap­pi­ness in to the lives of chil­dren and adults on Christ­mas Day.

This is the sev­enth year of the cam­paign which has been very suc­cess­ful and in­spired un­told gen­eros­ity.

How­ever or­gan­iser Claire Dar­mody ex­plained that this year the Vincent de Paul’s need in County Wick­low is greater than ever.

To take part and make the fes­tive sea­son eas­ier for those who are strug­gling, sim­ply drop a new un­wrapped gift or toy worth a min­i­mum of €10 into the East Coast FM stu­dios on Bray’s Kil­lar­ney Road. You can buy some­thing spe­cial for a girl, boy, man woman, baby or teenager.

Just in­clude a gift tag on the present to spec­ify gen­der and age. All the gifts will be dis­trib­uted by Vincent De Paul to the peo­ple who need it in County Wick­low. St Vincent De Paul ask that all toys and gifts do­nated are new rather than sec­ond hand. If you can’t get to the sta­tion you can drop gifts to Kidzone Wick­low, the Bridge­wa­ter Ark­low, or Shore­line Leisure Cen­tre Grey­stones. Gifts will also be ac­cepted at Avon­dale Sports Rath­drum, Dunnes Stores New­town, Londis Aughrim or Dunnes in Bless­ing­ton.
