Stirling’s community is rallying once again to ensure children and young people facing a host of difficulties will at least have a better festive season.Not only does the appeal exist to ensure no child goes without a gift on Christmas morning, it also aims to show vulnerable and disadvantaged young people - and their families - that their community and neighbours care.Appeal coordinator, Observer reporter Kaiya Marjoribanks said: “Every year we acknowledge that part of the reason for the appeal is to show youngsters and their families that their community is not oblivious to their struggles and admires their bravery.“This is not just about giving a child or young person a gift to open - it’s about making them feel less isolated.

Over the last couple of years that objective has been put in even sharper perspective amid the Covid pandemic and now the cost of living crisis.“Christmas is often a time when many children and their families feel more isolated than ever as they see others apparently enjoying activities while they feel on the sidelines.

That can be for financial reasons, illness or disability or personal circumstance.Click here for more news and sport from the Stirling area.“That’s why we strive to provide toys and gifts to as many local charities and good causes as possible.
