The NJC Secret Santa Appeal is now in its 12th year and to date has distributed over £250k of toys to local charities, community groups and families in need every Christmas. Each child receives approx. 4 – 5 toys each. Unlike other appeals we also cater for teenage children, and have in recent years through peoples generosity provided food hampers and clothing to several families in need also.
This years Secret Santa Collection is off to a flying start with presents already collected from both The Buttercrane and The Quays, Newry. When your shopping this year remember to buy an extra present to help us make sure no child goes without this Christmas. If you can, please buy a present for young teenagers as this is an age greatly in demand and often neglected. Thank you all so much for your continued support. Paddy Magee and Stephen O' Hare and everyone at the Newry Junior Chamber really appreciates it.
