Christ­mas ap­peal

Isis Town and Country - - News -

BUND­ABERG Re­gional Coun­cil of­fi­cially launched the Mayor’s Christ­mas Ap­peal yes­ter­day. Bund­aberg Mayor Mal For­man said while many ap­proached Christ­mas as a time to spend qual­ity time with fam­ily and ex­chang­ing gifts, for many peo­ple it could mean some­thing very dif­fer­ent. “Un­for­tu­nately there are many fam­i­lies in our re­gion ex­pe­ri­enc­ing fi­nan­cial hard­ships,” Cr For­man said. The Mayor’s Christ­mas Ap­peal raises money for the Sal­va­tion Army and St Vincent de Paul So­ci­ety, which dis­trib­ute food vouch­ers and gifts to fam­i­lies in need.
