It’s often called the most wonderful time of the year, but for many families Christmas can be incredibly difficult.

And that is particularly true in the current economic climate. Families, not too far from you, are having to make stark choices in what is supposed to be a festive period.

However, Glenavon Football Club is trying to do our bit to make life easier for families within our community with our Christmas Toy Appeal in support of the Salvation Army and St.Vincent de Paul.

Toys are needed for children of all ages and can be left at the main office at Mourneview Park from Monday, November 22 until Thursday, November 25 between 9am and noon or on Saturday, November 27 between 12 noon and 1pm.

So if you’re out over the next couple of weeks and you’re doing some shopping, pick up an extra toy and put a smile on a child’s face this Christmas.

Thank you for your support!
