Young apprentices who are part of the Fermanagh Trust’s ‘Grant Maker Apprentice Program...
Fermanagh House has donated toys to a number of local charities’ Christmas appeals. Each year the team at the social enterprise purchase several batches of gifts for families and children, utilising some of the income generated throughout the year by Fermanagh House.
Donations like this are more vital than ever before in these challenging times. Families challenged by poverty and youngsters in care are among those who will benefit.
Toys were given to three chosen charities: the Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul and Fermanagh Women’s Aid to distribute the gifts to those in need on their behalf.
Marilyn Quinn Centre Manager at Fermanagh House said “Thanks to all those who have utilised Fermanagh House throughout the year, making it possible for us to do this. Supporting those less fortunate is our motivation behind this toy donation to these groups who carry out vital work in our community.”
Marilyn added “Christmas is the time when everyone should think of those less privileged and to try to give something back. We are delighted to help and support these charities and the fantastic work they do especially in what has been a very difficult year for many. Every child deserves presents on Christmas day and we’re pleased to be in a position where we can support.”
Fermanagh House provides space for meetings, conferences and offices, located at the Broadmeadow in the centre of Enniskillen, and is owned by local grant-making charity, the Fermanagh Trust. For more info visit www.fermanaghhouse.org
