A clinic in Donegal is accepting presents for SVP in lieu of payment

A chiropractic clinic in Co Donegal has made headlines this morning following the launch of its second annual Christmas toy appeal.

The Freedom Spinal Health Chiropractic in Letterkenny took to Facebook at the end of November to remind the public that on Friday December 15 they would be accepting toys instead of standard payment.

"On Friday December 15th we'll be holding our 2nd annual Christmas Toy Appeal. On this day instead of taking payment for care, we ask that people donate new, boxed toys of similar value," read their post.

"These toys will then be collected by St Vincent de Paul and distributed to local families in our community, who may otherwise go without."


Referring to their inaugural appeal, the clinic paid tribute to everyone who made it a success last year.

"Last year we were blown away by the generosity of people, not just those who are under care here, but we had many donations from people who are not patient's of the practice."

In recent days, chiropractor Anthony Lavin elaborated on the endeavour, and revealed that members of the public, outside of their patient list, had gotten involved.

"We had a lot of donations from people last year who don't come to our clinic, but wanted to support this great cause," he explained.

Ladies, this is wonderful.
