Barnardos Shops Call for Unwanted Christmas Gifts

Posted on Wednesday 04 January 2023 in Press Releases

Wednesday 4th January: Barnardos children’s charity is calling on the public to donate any unwanted Christmas gifts to their shops. Whether it’s a jumper a size too small, perfume you already have or a book you've already read, 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 2023.  

Barnardos has seven shops around the country, located in Dublin (Dalkey, Clondalkin, Kilbarrack and Dun Laoghaire), Carlow, Cork and Wexford that are accepting donations. If you wish to donate any unwanted gifts this year, you can find your nearest shop and opening hours here.

Bernadette Harrington, Barnardos Shops Manager: ‘As the Cost of Living crisis continues and significantly impacts the vulnerable children and families we support, we need your help more than ever. 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. The funds brought in from each donated item will go directly towards our work with just under 17,000 children and families in communities across the country, ensuring our work can continue to support those who need it. Because childhood lasts a lifetime.’
