She collected 2,000 donated items to bring fun into the lives of sick children.

She collected 500 donated items to families of sick children staying at Ronald McDonald House.

Now Rachel wants to continue to give something back.

Rachel is collecting unwanted gifts again this year.

She is asking the Greystones community to donated unwanted Christmas gifts.

Cosmetics,  stationery,  toys and clothes.

Please consider what you actually want or need from your Christmas items.

Please donate superfluous items which must be brand new due to infection control.

This is based on principles of recycling and the “circular economy”.

Something that is unwanted or not needed may make a big difference to someone else !!

Items may be left at Greystones Cancer Support,  La Touche Place,  Greystones.

Rachel may be contacted on Facebook Crumlin’s Bundle of Fun or [email protected].
