The gift of giving
Many millions of pounds will be spent this Christmas buying presents, food, decorations and all the other trimmings of the festive season. For some people it will be a much more frugal time due to their impoverished circumstances, but how many of us really think of those people, never mind do anything to ease their plight.
Seven-year-old Donncha Campbell from Belfast has given us all a valuable lesson in what Christmas really means. He used his own photographs to design a calendar and raised £300 for two local charities who help needy families. What an inspirational story and a telling reminder that this time of year should be about giving as well as receiving.
