ONCE again, Caballs Toymaster has joined forces with St Vincent de Paul again this year to help ensure every child in the area gets a toy they want from Santa this Christmas.

The annual appeal has been a great success in the past and it’s hoped the people of Tralee and beyond show their seasonal spirit of generosity again by contributing.

Anyone who comes into the shop on Bridge Street can buy a special voucher,of any value, with the chosen amount going towards St Vincent de Paul to help them to get gifts for Kerry children at Christmas.

St Vincent de Paul will have a wish list from children and they try to get each of them a gift they want for Christmas from the money collected. So you can actually buy a toy for a child or just buy a voucher.

Junior Locke of St Vincent de Paul said the appeal is a vital every year to help make Christmas for children who would not get a gift if it weren’t for the scheme.

“It’s extremely important for us. When it comes to the Christmas period and some people haven’t put something aside for toys, Maurice and Ann here in Caballs have been incredibly helpful to us with this appeal. When we go to a house and we know that there isn’t going to be any toys, we can come down here and ensure we get that toy to make that child’s Christmas.”

Ann Laide of Caballs Toymaster said; “It’s a pleasure and an honour to be able to help St Vincent de Paul with all the work they do. They need so much at this time of the year we’ll do everything possible to help. All it takes is to buy a voucher of any value and that money will go straight to St Vincent de Paul to buy toys for Christmas.”

It’s such an important appeal so get involved if you can. Call into the shop on Bridge Street to buy a voucher. It could make a child’s Christmas.
