Barnardos children’s charity is calling on the public to donate any unwanted Christmas gifts to their shops. Whether it is a jumper a size too small or a book you already have, it can be donated to one of Barnardos shops and will be greatly welcomed by staff. Every cent generated from a donated item will go towards the charity’s work with children and families across Ireland in 2022. Barnardos has seven shops around the country, including in Clondalkin, that are now accepting donations. Your donation will not only help strengthen sustainability in the marketplace, but also go a long way towards support children and families throughout 2022.
Bernadette Harrington, Barnardos Shops Manager said: “In each of our shops you will find anything from clothes, shoes, accessories and children’s items to household goods. If you received anything that was too small, too big or just not right for your home we will gladly find a home for it in our shop. The funds brought in from each donated item will go directly towards our work with just under 18,000 children and families in communities across the country, so it really will be the gift that keeps on giving. “There is something for everyone in Barnardos shops and donations of unwanted gifts, big or small, are always welcome! “
If you wish to donate any unwanted gifts this year, you will find your nearest shop and its opening hours and for more information see https://www.barnardos.ie/how-you-can-help/shop-with-us/about-our-shops/find-your-local-shop.
