    Girls we have been chatting about folk less fortunate at xmas and a few of us would like to organise something maybe a gift donation etc. we had origianlly thought the hospital but think maybe that there is already lots organised there at xmas.
    What charity do you think?????????
    Or any ideas???????????????/
    It has to work logistically too i.e gift collection.

    What about the homeless aid?? There is a huge amount of homelessness in Drogheda and these guys could do with a hand up? We could do a list of the charity suggestions and then perhaps take a vote on it>?

    Thats a great idea, we could do up boxes of little gifts. It would be nice to give to somewhere local too.

    wonder how we could even organise gathering all the gifts (if we decide to do that?) maybe arrange a coffee morning one saturday?

    If you ask for a list of childrens ages & whether they are boys or girls we could each buy for a child

    (would have loved a helping hand my 1st Christmas in emergency accomadation)

    they will be moving up near millmount somewhere but haven’t yet… not sure when the move is planned for.
    not sure if it work buying for each child as it varies who’s there or not… don’t want to buy for them to find there’s new kids there at christmas who we haven’t accounted for.
    maybe just buy communal toys for different age groups or something?

    Yeah I suppose my place was kinda longer term so would’ve worked there.

    But in all honesty what is communal toys ? especially for a child who has nothing? Maybe we’d be better off buying a 10/15/20 quid smyths voucher each & donating them
