The appeal helps needy Islanders at Christmas by distributing fuel, toys and food vouchers, as well as hampers. Over the next three weeks, a number of fundraising events will be held including a charity auction on BBC Radio Jersey on Sunday 7 December and a tour of the parishes by Father Christmas in his sleigh.
John Averty, chairman of this year’s Christmas appeal, has urged Islanders to give generously to help those in the Island who cannot afford what others might take for granted.
The appeal, which was first launched in 1897, is supported by a number of Island clubs and associations.
