Chil­dren re­ceive gifts from peo­ple all over Wick­low

Bray People - - NEWS -

HUN­DREDS of boys and girls opened presents on Christ­mas morn­ing which they would not have re­ceived with­out the gen­eros­ity of the peo­ple of Wick­low.

This was East Coast FM’s ‘Give a Gift’ cam­paign which got un­der way for the sixth time this year, or­gan­ised again by the sta­tion’s Morn­ing Show pro­ducer, Claire Dar­mody.

All of the presents given were do­nated to St Vincent de Paul and dis­trib­uted to fam­i­lies in need this Christ­mas.

Since East Coast FM’s give a gift cam­paign be­gan, the de­mand on St Vincent de Paul has in­creased more than 100 per cent.

The piles of toys were big­ger this year than ever be­fore though, with barely room to move in the re­cep­tion area of East Coast FM.

One anony­mous donor comes in ev­ery year. He leaves a pile of toys, and leaves with­out a word. ‘We don’t know who he is,’ said a spokesper­son for the ra­dio sta­tion.
