Joe Whelan’s Toymaster store in Tipperary town is a partner with RTE 2FM in the Toy Appeal in aid of St. Vincent de Paul (SVP).
Toymaster gift vouchers can be purchased for the Toy Appeal and Joe Whelan’s Toymaster will ensure that they will be delivered to SVP in time for Christmas. “This is a most worthwhile cause which can make Christmas extra special for a child,” said Ann Whelan. “It is Toymaster’s and SVP’s wish that every child receives a toy this Christmas; make it your wish too by just giving what you can,” she said. Joe Whelan’s Toymaster is helping to promote the Toy Appeal by arranging to have Santa Claus in store every Saturday and Sunday for the month of December so he can collect Toymaster Vouchers from customers and give them to the SVP.This is the nation’s biggest ever charity toy appeal led by 2FM presenters including Ryan Tubridy, Hector Ó hEochagain, Ruth Scott, Colm Hayes and Larry Gogan. The RTÉ 2FM Toy Appeal for St. Vincent de Paul is now in its third year and was born out of the hugely successful Toys for Tubs initiative in 2010. RTE 2FM and St. Vincent de Paul are offering people a range of options; partnering with Toymaster and Easons, where vouchers for the Toy Appeal can be purchased and with Supervalu, whose 195 stores nationwide are being made available as collection points for toys.
