HSE and Tusla Staff in Mayo have launched their annual Bronntanas Appeal for Christmas 2019.
Now in its 17th year, the Bronntanas project sees children from less fortunate families receive a Christmas gift anonymously during the festive season.
Bronntanas volunteers are given the initials of a child, their age, whether they are a boy or girl, and what they would like for Christmas and then buy an appropriate gift for that child.
Last year, the Bronntanas Appeal resulted in gifts being given to over 450 children.
Teresa Quinn, one of the organisers of the Bronntanas appeal, told Midwest Radio News that she is hopeful that people will show the same kindness and generosity again this year.
