The St. Vincent De Paul Society & Salvation Army were very grateful for the food and toys that have been so generously donated by our school community. It is expected that requests for assistance from this year’s appeal will remain high, reflecting the financial difficulties facing many families at this time.
Local volunteers are working hard ensure that no family is without food over the festive period and no child goes without a gift on Christmas morning. A cross community effort of volunteers aims to bring food hampers and toys to many families within our local community from all faiths and background.
If you feel you are eligible for support from the Family Appeal contact your local social worker, health visitor for guidance notes and an application form or contact the Banbridge office of the St. Vincent De Paul direct on 028 4066 2047/ Salvation Army.
