Mary Gamble, Barnardos Fundraising Manager said: “Shaking a bucket or joining an organised bag pack for Barnardos on September 16th is a great opportunity to make a real difference. Last year more than 1000 volunteers took to the streets for the children and families in their communities and raised funds to allow Barnardos work with more children than ever before. Join us on September 16th to help a child in your community.”
