Christmas Toy Appeal

Christmas Toy Appeal

Following the recent restructuring of the Board for Social Responsibility (Northern Ireland) – now known as Family Routes – the Christmas Toy Appeal has been taken on by Central Church staff in Church of Ireland House, Belfast. Parishes can leave donated toys in Church House, 61–67 Donegall Street, Belfast (parking to rear). Please contact Mrs Margaret Yarr, Mrs Claire Geoghegan, or Dr Peter Hamill to arrange a time for you to deliver them. Telephone: (028) 9082 8860 / 9082 8830 or email cponi@ireland.anglican.org. A letter will be circulated to parishes regarding the new arrangements.

The Christmas toy collection has helped many families in need over the years and brought Christmas morning excitement to a lot of small people. We would like to thank those who have contributed in the past and those who are preparing gifts this year. Toys are distributed through parishes and social welfare workers.
