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 20,000 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!
Simply bring new and unwrapped toys and gifts to our toy drop-off points across the country:
We reached our target of 15,000 toys for our Stuff a Bus 2018 appeal!!! Watch the Movie
