THERE is always a significant demand from struggling parents in Cookstown for toys donated to the annual appeal run by St Vincent de Paul and the Salvation Army.

And each year the Christmas Toy Appeal, supported by BBC NI, distributes gifts to families in the district earmarked by health visitors and social services as being particularly in need.
