Girvan Youth Trust has launched its Toy Raffle appeal in the hope of supporting local children and charities.

The annual event has seen over 400 toys distributed to local children and almost £7,000 being raised for local charities.

The Trust hope all businesses and the Carrick public support them whilst appreciating 2015 has been a demanding time in terms of appeals.

The ‘Secret Santa’ option on every ticket will allow winners to donate their prize to a local child or family most in need. The Trust’s ‘elves’ have so far donated over 75 toys not only at Christmas but at birthday’s too.

A Santa’s Helper said: “You should see the delight on the faces of those who receive the gifts. Very often these are gifts the family would not be able to afford.”

Anyone wishing to donate a new toy or give a monetary donation for buying new toys should contact any member of Girvan Youth Trust Staff or Volunteer,Phone 01465 714729, e-mail Girvanyouthtrust@hotmail.com or Facebook: Girvan Youth Trust / Z1 Youth Bar
