Local families and children in Athlone have just under two weeks to donate their pre-loved toys to the Argos Toy Exchange in support of local charities, which ends on November 25.
The Argos Toy Exchange encourages parents and children to donate their unwanted toys in any Argos store nationwide, including the store in Golden Island, Athlone, and in return they will receive a €5 gift voucher to redeem when they spend €35 or more on toys at Argos up until Christmas Eve.
All donations received will be passed on to local charities and then sold in their retail stores to raise much-needed funds.
Andy McClelland of Argos said: “We have been amazed by the generosity of the Irish people since the Argos Toy Exchange was launched. We’ve seen some generous donations so far across the country, but we’re asking people to have that one last sort out and help increase donations before our deadline. Each donation plays its part in helping others, particularly supporting local charities and services, so please do help where you can.”
Donated toys can be taken to Argos stores until Tuesday November 25. For more information about the Toy Exchange, visit www.argos.ie/toyexchange
