Athol Street-based wealth managers, Canaccord Genuity staff have collected toys and games for the Salvation Army Christmas toy appeal.

Head of wealth management, Dermot Hamill, said: ’We are delighted to contribute again to such a worthy cause and it is marvellous in itself that the Salvation Army endeavours to guarantee that all boys and girls on the island have something to open on Christmas Day!’

Last year the Salvation Army provided around 2,500 donated toys.

The charity has run the Christmas Appeal for decades, to help those in need ’who might not otherwise receive gifts and to ensure that every child in the island wakes up to presents under the tree’.

If you want to donate, please remember babies and teenagers when buying presents.
