Operating as usual


Folks we will be taking donations if you are able to give! Drop off at school, same as previous years. Or give Carol Cooper or myself a shout โค๏ธ


This is how our 9-12 bundles look today. We have a tally and quite honestly, it makes us incredibly anxious. This is not even close to the 1648 young people we have left in this age.

You, our incredible supporters always pull through for the thousands of children in Northern Ireland, who through no fault of their own, will otherwise receive no gifts at christmas.

We have applications for 5,000 children and young people aged 7+, both boys and girls, still left to complete. We are really struggling to gather enough gifts to fulfil them.

We have 10 working days remaining in the warehouseโ€ฆ

At this very moment we quite simply arenโ€™t going to be able to help them all.

You have the power to change that!

If every follower of our pages donated ONE gift on our online gift list or made a cash donation our Mission would be much closer to completion.

We understand times are tough right now, if giving isnโ€™t possible for you then please share far and wide!

Thank you to every single person who has already donated, you can wake up on Christmas day and know that a child in Northern Ireland has gifts under the tree because of you โค๏ธ

We would love to have you join us at Ceara School for some festive cheer ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ
