The Family Appeal

Until Friday December 16, many Salvation Army centres across Northern Ireland will be running the Family Appeal.

Every year The Salvation Army and Society of St Vincent de Paul (SVP) team up at Christmas to help spread some festive cheer.

The Family Appeal is one of the largest of Christmas present appeals in Northern Ireland and has been bringing festive cheer to thousands of underprivileged children and families since 1980.

Last year's appeal distributed around 50,000 gifts – all of which was made possible by the generosity of local people and organisations.

How to support your local appeal

Gift donations for children aged from newborn to 16 years can be made at any branch of The Salvation Army or SVP NI. Gifts can also be left in any Tesco, Gordons Chemist and First Trust Bank. All gifts must be new and unwrapped, and the appeal would welcome donations for older boys and girls such as gift tokens, board games, selection boxes, and toiletries.

You can also find out where to donate your gift or get more information on the Family Appeal by contacting your nearest Salvation Army centre below…
