Mayor Ramon Jayo launches the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal by requesting Hinchinbrook residents to add a little light, love and laughter to those less fortunate in our community.
“Hinchinbrook residents have shown their compassion over the years and have supported this Appeal by generously donating gifts and food in the lead up to Christmas for needy families in the district”.
“I’m happy to say that over the years many people have contributed to the Appeal, and I thank the community for their ongoing support. I urge all residents to spread some extra Christmas cheer and encourage you all to put just one extra toy or non-perishable grocery item in your trolley when shopping and place it under the Christmas tree in the customer service area of the Hinchinbrook Shire Council main office”.
For those residents who feel they don’t have enough time to purchase a gift or food, you may like to pop into Council’s main office and quickly make a monetary donation. All donations will be passed on to the Hinchinbrook Community Support Centre to purchase appropriate items for those in need this Christmas.
This Appeal will run from Thursday 9 November 2023 until 5.00pm Wednesday 13 December 2023 to allow time for all items/gifts to be delivered to the Hinchinbrook Community Support Centre for distribution to the needy prior to Christmas.
“I urge you to again lend your support to this most worthy cause”.
