Merry Christmas everyone!

Thank you so much to all those that have donated items in the last month of warm items, food parcels, toys and fabulous Christmas treats. We thank you all for thinking of us and supporting our local community. Its busy here over the next few weeks as we are giving out Keep Warm parcels and Christmas In a Bag Hampers to lots of families, large and small, to help make their Christmas special and warm.

Plans for next year are coming together, working even more with Communigrow and our Keep Warm Project cooking courses. With Mind, referring people to their Creative Minds Wellbeing course, starting in January. Along with all our regular activities and school holiday events we are looking forward to seeing even more of you all.
