Anthony Lavin of Freedom Spinal Health Chiropractic is accepting toys instead of payment on Friday in aid of Saint Vincent de Paul in the run-up to Christmas.
In the season of good will, the clinic is calling on new and existing clients to book appointments as normal but instead of paying for their session to simply donate a new toy with a similar value to the treatment.
Anthony says that already, they have received donations from people who aren’t even clients and would just like to donate to this worthy cause.
“It’s something that I’ve done for the last 10 years when I was working in the UK, in relation to the Salvation Army, so when I returned to live here in Donegal I wanted to continue it.” Anthony explained to Donegal Daily.
“As the community supports me all year round by choosing us to be their chiropractor I feel it’s great to be in a position to give something back.
“St Vincent de Paul do brilliant work with those most at need, right on our own doorstep, so I felt it right to support them.
“Last year, even as our first year doing it was brilliant. St Vincent de Paul was blown away when they came to collect the donations. They had to send a van!
“We were amazed at the generosity of many who aren’t members of our practice but heard about what we were doing and came in and donated. We also had many who donated even though they weren’t booked in for care on that day!”
Anyone interested in availing of an opportunity to improve their spinal health and contribute to a worthy cause should call the clinic on 074 91 11292.Tags:
