Jedward launch 2017 Christmas present appeal

By Staff Reporter

Jedward have launched the 2017 Family Appeal, one of Northern Ireland's largest and longest running Christmas present appeals.

Pop duo John and Edward teamed up with the Salvation Army and St Vincent de Paul to bring festive cheer to local underprivileged children and families.

The appeal has received an additional boost this year with the announcement that Translink has come on board as a supporter and will be placing collection bins in six of its busiest bus and rail stations.

U105 will also be encouraging its listeners to help 'Stuff a Bus'.

The aim is to collect at least 10,000 gifts during the popular appeal which will run until December 19.

Last year, the appeal - now in its 38th year - distributed 50,000 gifts to children across Northern Ireland.
