Christmas shopping in south Donegal has never been easier!

Just pick up a Ballyshannon Christmas Gift Card and you’ll help local businesses as well as a Community Assistance Fund. The scheme is being organised by Meitheal Bheal Atha Seanaigh, in cooperation with other community and voluntary groups under the catch phrase “Let no one go cold or hungry in our Community this Christmas.”

Christmas gift cards are now available, for values from €10 to €200, from: Kilbarron House, tel 071 985 1295; St. Joseph’s The Rock, tel 071 985 1221; and The Town Council Offices, tel 071 985 8270. The organisers say the response so far has been very encouraging indeed. Proceeds will be used to buy Christmas dinners, hampers, turkeys, hams, coal, gas or other essential items for families or individuals in need of assistance this Christmas, possibly for the first time ever because of the current recession. Donations can also be given to any of the special collections being organised over the next week.

If you need assistance, ring us on 087 350 6090 in confidence that you will be treated with discretion, courtesy and respect.
