Anne Laide from Tralees famous Toy Store , Caballs , has come together with St Vincent De Paul to organise the hugely popular Christmas Toy appeal which will run right up til Christmas again this year .
!Its simple , really ,” says Anne . We want all the children in Kerry to get a present on Christmas morning “
Anyone who would like to donate to this very worthwhile cause can drop into Anne and her staff at Caball’s Shop on Bridge Street.Then they simply buy a ‘Special Christmas appeal voucher’ for whatever amount they can afford. The money from the vouchers will then be pooled together and Caballs will then give an extra contribution from the shop itself. Then these funds will be used to buy toys for Children all over Kerry.
To make sure every child gets the present they would like, St Vincent De Paul is accepting Christmas lists from families and every effort will be made to ensure that each and every child will get exactly the present they would most like to see under the tree on Christmas morning .
Anne Laide said the appeal is aimed at making sure every child in Kerry has a Christmas to remember .
“On Christmas Day there is absolutely nothing more important than a child,” “
“People can call in and buy a voucher or make a donation for any amount and for whatever they can afford,” she said.
“Every single cent that is donated will go towards buying toys for children who need them Don’t we all want to see every child in Kerry happy on Christmas Day.?” asks Anne
