Newry Business Christmas Charity Dinner 2022

For the first time since 2019, one of the highlights of the social calendar in Newry City and a major charity fundraising event, the Newry Business Christmas Charity Dinner & Toy Mountain is back in person.

This year’s event will take place on Thursday 8th December 2022 in the Canal Court Hotel & Spa, Newry commencing at 6pm.

This will be the 23rd year of guests building the famous Toy Mountain in the foyer of the Canal Court Hotel & Spa, Newry and with the support of the local business community, some £1.7 million has been raised over the previous 22 years for good causes.

For the past two years, due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Charity Dinner did not take place however, through the generosity of local businesses and the wider community, the Toy Mountain continued to be built.

This event is typically attended by some 700 people each year, with each guest asked to bring a toy or make a donation to the Toy Mountain.

While the organising committee is planning and working behind the scenes to ensure that no child in the Greater Newry Area will go without a toy this Christmas, the committee members are conscious that this year will be a particularly difficult one for so many families. 

Working with St Vincent de Paul and other charities, the event will also support families and individuals at a time when needs are most.


Tickets for the Newry Business Christmas Charity Dinner are priced at £65.00 each with a table of 10 priced at £600.00. 

There are a number of options to purchase tickets:


Individual Tickets
Up to a total of four can be purchased on this platform via credit/debit card with immediate confirmation. 

Group Bookings
