Lisburn Chamber Christmas Appeal 2023



Lisburn Chamber of Commerce is delighted to launch their annual Christmas Appeal, supporting once again, Barnardo’s NI and the Lisburn Food Bank.

Now in its nineth year, the Chamber toy appeal plays a crucial role in the work Barnardo’s undertake through their Lisburn family support services and all donated toys and gifts are given to families living in the Greater Lisburn area.

Roberta Marshall from Barnardo’s, commented, “Each year we are overwhelmed by the generosity of the Chamber appeal and our families are so appreciative of the toys and gifts they receive. This year has been particularly difficult for many children and families, due to the rising cost of living and so the support from the public and Lisburn Chamber of Commerce, will go a long way for many local families this Christmas”.

A Barnardo’s supported parent previously commented, “This year was going to be extremely difficult for us and I had such guilt that I couldn’t give my children a Christmas they deserved. A weight has been lifted off my shoulders through what you have given us and I can’t thank you enough. The kindness will never be forgotten!”

This year Lisburn Chamber has organised collection points for the public and Chamber members to donate toys up until Thursday December 14th. Gift vouchers for teenagers are particularly appreciated and these can be purchased from many Lisburn retailers.

The donation points are:                    

Lisburn City Centre Management                       11-13 Market Square

Running in conjunction with the toy collection, is the online appeal for the Lisburn Food Bank. The organisation has seen a dramatic rise in calls for help in 2023.

Lynsey Agnew from Lisburn Food Bank commented, “last Christmas, we received £2000 in donations from Lisburn Chamber of Commerce and every penny went to assist families in our local community. Enquiry numbers have risen in recent months as energy costs have escalated, so this fund-raising initiative is really appreciated.”

Chamber President Dr Katrina Collins commented, “2023 has been a difficult year for many businesses, with rising costs from energy suppliers etc. I am confident however that the local business community will step up once again and show their tremendous generosity in donating to these two worthy causes.”
