Santa’s Big Fundraiser Appeal
Christmas is coming and it’s time to get into the festive spirit!
On November 23rd, Derry man Martin Gallagher launched his 11th annual Santa’s Big Fundraiser Appeal for Children in Crossfire. He does this every year in loving memory of his son, Christopher, who died tragically of malaria in 2006.
Martin – AKA Santa – is collecting donations for us at the Guildhall all day, every day, between now and the 22nd December. He’s there in all weathers, bringing festive cheer to passersby and raising lots of money in the process!
If you’re in town in the run up to Christmas and you’re thinking of taking the kids to see Santa, why not come to the Guildhall to do it. You’ll get a free selfie with the big man, a wee bag of sweet treats (the kids might even get some!) and a special Santa sticker as a memento of your visit. All we ask is for a small donation in return.
With your support, we can make a real difference to some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
Give the gift of change this Christmas.
If you aren’t able to make it to see Santa this year, there are also some opportunities to donate online. Just visit:
