The ever popular toy raffle organised by the Girvan Youth Trust is set to be launched at the Girvan Christmas Street Party.

Since its launch in 2011, businesses in Girvan and the local community have ensured 280 quality toys have been delivered to households in the town which have given children an extra special and memorable Christmas morning. The unique appeal has also managed to raise £5791 in aid of the Christmas street party and the raffle clearly brings the community together to help everyone out at Christmas and in particular, the local children.

This year the street party committee has said it has sufficient funds but the Youth Trust has still been indundated with requests from parents to carry out the toy raffle. And as in previous years they are asking local businesses and individuals to hand in new toys to the Z1 bar in Dalrymple Street to support children at this time of year.

The raffle ticket sale will be launched on Friday 5th December at the street party with the draw being made on Friday 19th December - so make sure you take part.
