The family team at Hegarty Solicitors have been busy buying extra presents this year to help make Christmas a little more special for vulnerable local children and young people who may be facing a difficult time.
This will be the second year that the team have participated in the Christmas Toy Appeal that is organised by Family Action as a part of their Together at Christmas campaign. The campaign aims to make Christmas a time to enjoy for vulnerable children and families and to support them through local services. In 2017, Family Action was able to deliver presents to over 6000 children through the generous support of local groups and businesses.
Alex Hartnoll, Trainee Paralegal in the Family Department at Hegarty Solicitors commented “Working in the family department means I get to work with different families. Christmas can be both an exciting and daunting time of year. The Christmas Toy Appeal is an excellent way to help families who may need a little more support, and to bring a little bit of magic to a child’s Christmas.”
This year Family Action is aiming to provide 6000 gifts to underprivileged children that they are working with. We are pleased to have contributed to this cause as it can make a real difference in the lives of these families during the Christmas period.
