Give A Gift Campaign

Not everyone will get what they want this Christmas and we’re asking you to get involved in the East Coast FM/St Vincent De Paul “Give A Gift” campaign to make a change.
This campaign has been a massive success in the past and we would like to thank all our listeners who took part in this worthwhile initiative over the last two years.
Unfortunately this year, the Vincent De Paul’s need in County Wicklow is greater then ever.
To take part and make this Christmas easier for those who are struggling simply drop a new unwrapped gift/toy worth a minimum of €10 into the East Coast FM studio’s in Bray or any of the drop-off points listed in the side panel to the left.
We need presents for all ages, girls and boys, men and women, babies, teenagers, toddlers and adults.
Please put a gift tag on your unwrapped present to specify who it is meant for - gender and age.
All the gifts will be distributed by Vincent De Paul to the people who need it in County Wicklow.
