Thank you for helping us to make a positive difference to hundreds of people over the festive period. Thanks to the many generous donations of food and gifts from individuals, schools, businesses, corporations and government, we were able give presents to 380 children and over 200 hampers to local families, elderly people and people staying in shelters over Christmas. None of this would have been possible without the generosity of the many people and organisations who gave donations, and the volunteers who helped to sort the food and gifts for distribution.
