Barnardos looking for unwanted Christmas gifts

By Echo Reporter

BARNARDOS ARE looking for your unwanted Christmas gifts.

It’s practically a Christmas tradition, unwrapping presents on Christmas morning to find out that you have been given more than you need!

Christmas presents donated

Luckily, whether it’s a jumper that’s two sizes too small, a DVD of a film you’ve already seen countless times or another scented candle, there’s a home for it in a Barnardos shop.

Barnardos has seven shops around the country including four in Dublin, in Clondalkin, Rathmines, Kilbarrack and Dun Laoghaire.

You can drop unwanted gifts into any one of the shops, safe in the knowledge that its sale will make someone else happy and at the same time raise money for Barnardos’ work with over 11,300 children and families.

Bernadette Harrington from Barnardos told The Echo: “We’ve all received a Christmas gift at one time or another that we could do without. But don’t forget – whatever that gift is, it might be just what someone else is looking for!
