Media Release - Christmas In Hinchinbrook Events Bring Joy To Community

Hinchinbrook Council

20th December 2018

With Christmas only a few days away, Hinchinbrook Shire Council would like to thank the sponsors and event partners for their contribution to Christmas in Hinchinbrook festivities.

Mayor Ramon Jayo said that event partners and sponsors had played an important role in bringing Christmas in Hinchinbrook events to the community.

‘Christmas in Hinchinbrook events such as the Seniors Morning Tea, Christmas Carols and Mayor’s Christmas Appeal have been hugely successful again this year. Part of their success is due to the important collaboration that both sponsors and event partners play in delivering these events to the community.’

‘Without the contributions of local businesses, organisations and community members, it would not be possible to present such wonderful activities and events to our community during the festive season.’

The Mayor’s Christmas Appeal this year saw hundreds of toys and non-perishable items, and over $500 donated to vulnerable persons throughout the community.

Hinchinbrook Community Support Centre Chief Executive Officer, Linda McClelland said it was heart-warming to see the community come together at this time.

‘Christmas is a very special time of year however for some families and individuals Christmas can be difficult both financially and emotionally. This year the community has donated hundreds upon hundreds of toys and non-perishable items which will be distributed to those in need throughout the community.’

‘Cash donations will be used to buy essential items for families in need.’
