Christmas with Translink
Help Us Stuff a Bus
 

Translink and U105 have teamed-up again this Christmas for the Stuff A Bus toy collection in aid of The Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul Family Appeal.  The appeal will help families in our local communities who are experiencing financial and emotional hardship, by ensuring that children who may not otherwise receive a gift, wake up to a present on Christmas morning.
 
Last year you helped us to smash our target, stuffing not one bus, but two. This time, our goal is to fill a double decker with 15,000 presents which will be delivered just in time for Christmas. It is our mission to help put a smile on the faces of thousands of local kids and we need your help!

What Does a Gift Mean?
 
A gift means more than just a new toy to open. A gift shows a child that someone cares. For families living on low incomes, it provides relief for the whole family - easing the stress placed on parents. A gift shows families we’re here for them.
