Barnardos shops accepting unwanted Christmas gifts

Barnardos children’s charity is calling on the public to donate any unwanted Christmas gifts to their shops.

The charity has seven shops around the country, which are all accepting donations.

Four of the shops are in Dublin – Dalkey, Clondalkin, Kilbarrack and Dun Laoghaire, and the others in Carlow, Cork and Wexford.

It said every cent generated from a donated item will go towards the charity’s work with children and families across Ireland in 2024.  

“If you have received a gift that was too small, too big or just not right we will gladly find a home for it in our shop,” said Bernadette Harrington, Barnardos Retail Shops Manager.

“The funds brought in from each donated item will go directly towards the work in 54 service locations, in family homes, schools, early learning and care settings and communities,” she added.

Last year Barnardos worked with 20,838 children and their families.

“Your donations will ensure our work can continue to support those who need it,” Ms Harrington said.
