Christmas, as we grow older we realise that it’s not about the receiving but more about giving. Now what’s better than giving presents to family or friends? It is giving to complete strangers; giving to family and kids who are under difficult circumstances and don’t have the same advantages that we have.
It’s about giving without receiving a thank you, but knowing that even for a moment you have brightened someone’s day.
This year we are working with Cash for Kids to give gifts/toys to those children who might otherwise get nothing this Christmas. 1 in 4 children in Northern Ireland are living in poverty, and while we can’t help them all, even brightening up one of their Christmases makes all the difference.

We are also donating for our hamper appeal which will be provided to a local food bank before Christmas, with non-perishables such as biscuits, sweets and tinned goods. You are welcome to donate if you are dropping by our office between now and the Christmas break.
Feel free to drop by with toys for kids aged 0-18 as a contribution to our appeal, also. We know that personal pressures are felt by everyone during the season, so IF you CAN help, please do.
Alternatively, you can text FIVE to 70808 to donate £5 instead.
Last but certainly not least, have you heard how we digitally transformed the world's leading toy distributor!
