South Tipperary shoppers are being asked to help children this Christmas by supporting the Barnardos annual Christmas Toy Appeal, and donating a gift for a child.
Toys can be dropped to any GLS Parcel Shop nationwide by December 18, and will then be delivered to Barnardos centres in time for Christmas.
Gifts should be new and unwrapped and can be for any child from infant to 12 years old. A gift guide is available on www.barnardos.ie.
This is the fourth year that the logistics company will deliver all toys free of charge.
Barnardos works with over 6,300 children and families in 40 centres nationwide. For many of the families Barnardos works with, Christmas can be an incredibly tough and stressful time. For many of these families the Barnardos Toy Appeal helps make Christmas special.
