Ashton would like to send a heartfelt thanks and gratitude to their staff, sub-contractors and sponsors, Gallagher Insurance, G McG Accountants, and Quarter Accountants for their fabulous generosity with the Christmas Toy Appeal.

Following a month-long appeal, staff, sponsors, and sub-contractors dug deep and purchased new and pre-loved toys to give children a fabulous Christmas and take the additional pressures off parents.

We have supported 60 families with 105 children by setting up a Christmas grotto for parents to visit and select toys for all their children.

We would also like to thank our local Women’s group who are funded by DfC Freshstart along with the Joanne O’Reilly and the Training and Employment team who led on this initiative.

Once again thank you all for your help and generosity and we wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
