Colin Christmas Appeal, organised by the Colin Neighbourhood
Partnership and NSPCC has been launched to allow the community
to think of young children who are not as fortunate as
themselves and donate a present, however small, to those in
need. The presents will then be distributed by the NSPCC.
The presents are for all young people aged
0-18 years, however the Partnership is encouraging people
consider presents for those aged 8-13 as in the past this age
groups seems to have been neglected.
The present should be new and unwrapped — a
gift bag would be more suitable. Suggestions for presents are
new stationary, games, toys, DVD's and gift vouchers.
Joan Hughes, Children's Services Manager at
the NSPCC Clanna Centre, said: "I would like to thank the local
community for all
their support in the past two years and
assure you the NSPCC will continue to be committed to supporting
people in the area. We would like to encourage everyone to
please donate a gift this Christmas and help make this Christmas
special for some children."
The Colin Neighbourhood Partnership and the
NSPCC are very grateful to everyone who contributed presents
over previous years and would like to extend gratitude to all
those who will take the time to give a child a better Christmas
Presents can be left into the Colin
Neighbourhood Partnership office at Unit W4, The Dairy Farm,
Stewartstown Road. Please note that all presents must be left in
by Friday December 12.
