4th Year Christmas Gifts for Children in Need

Last week, Sophie McCarthy, a 4th Year student, along with some of her fellow 4th Year students organised to gather and wrap what can only be described as a mountain of donated children’s Christmas gifts.


These gifts will be given to children in direct provision, who might otherwise not be receiving any gifts this Christmas. This is something that touched Sophie so much that she decided to do something about it and organised to gather gifts and presents which Sophie and other 4th Year students personally wrapped up to give to those in less fortunate circumstances than themselves. They did this in their free time and The Institute was more than happy to provide them with space to gather and organise all the presents.


Here are some photos of Sophie and the other amazing 4th Year students and the gifts that they hope will bring even a little joy to children in direct provision this year.
