Fermanagh House helped to spread some festive cheer by donating toys to those who needed a little helping hand at Christmas.

Each year, the team at Fermanagh House purchase several batches of gifts for families and children, utilising some of the income generated throughout the year.

Fermanagh House, located at Broadmeadow, Enniskillen, is a social enterprise owned by local grant-making charity, The Fermanagh Trust, and income from the facilities of office space and meeting rooms helps them to reach even more local groups and charities with grant-making and donations such as this.

The building is a resource for the entire community and is utilised by many groups and organisations.

Toys were given to three chosen charities: The Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul and Fermanagh Women’s Aid, to distribute the gifts to those in need on their behalf.

Marilyn Quinn, Centre Manager at Fermanagh House, said: “In what has been a challenging year, thanks to all those who have utilised Fermanagh House, making it possible for us to make this donation.

“Supporting those less fortunate is our motivation behind giving toys to these groups who carry out vital work in our community.”

Marilyn added: “It is lovely at this time of year to be able to share. We are delighted to help and support these charities and the fantastic work they do.

“Every child deserves presents on Christmas day and we’re pleased to be in a position where we can support others.”
