Not everyone will get what they want this Christmas.
Since East Coast FM began their give a gift campaign, the demand on Vincent De Paul has increased considerably- so we need your help more then ever.
We’re asking you to get involved in the East Coast FM/St Vincent De Paul“Give A Gift” campaign to make a change.
To take part simply drop a new unwrapped gift/toy worth a minimum of €10 into the East Coast FM studio’s in Bray (Radio centre, Killarney Road, Bray).
We need presents for all ages, girls and boys, men and women, babies, teenagers, toddlers and adults. Please put a gift tag on your present to specify who it is meant for, gender, age etc.
All the gifts will be distributed by Vincent De Paul to the people who need it in County Wicklow. St Vincent De Paul ask that all toys/gifts are new, no second hand toys or unwanted/unused goods please.
If you can’t get to us at the studio you can drop your gift at;

“This is the 7th year of the campaign and it has continued to be a bigger success every year; we really hope the people of Wicklow can help as much again this year, as unfortunately the need is even greater. It is also important to remind people unlike other campaigns we ensure all gifts are kept in the County and distributed locally from venue you dropped off –
Again this year, we also ask people to maybe even consider adults when getting their gifts, as people often just think of the kids, but there will be mum and dads out there that are obviously just worrying about providing for their children that may have nobody to think of them this Christmas, so if someone wants to get a little gift for an adult male or female that would be greatly received too“
