Barnardos and AIB have teamed up again this year to collect toys that will be distributed to children in poor famlies. Christmas is a very special time, especially for children, but unfortunately many families find it difficult to make ends meet as Christmas becomes more and more commercial. This appeal helps to bring Santa to these children.
You are welcome to bring new (unwrapped if possible) toys to any AIB branch and leave in the special Better Ireland toy appeal bag - your gift will support children and families in Barnardos services throughout Ireland. Your kind donation will go to a child attending a Barnardos service and any surplus toys will help to provide support services for more children throughout the country, making sure your gift keeps on giving long after Christmas is over.
It couldnt be simpler. I know its a little late to blog about this as it ends next Friday, the 16th, but when I mentioned this to some friends at lunch on Friday I was surprised that they had not heard of it before.
