Mayor helps spread the word at Christ­mas

Isis Town and Country - - News -

WE’RE look­ing for busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions across the re­gion to help us spread the Christ­mas cheer through the Mayor’s Christ­mas Ap­peal.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil Mayor Mal For­man said Go Christ­massy Day on Fri­day, De­cem­ber 18, was an op­por­tu­nity to get in to the fes­tive spirit and raise money for a wor­thy cause at the same time.

“On Go Christ­massy Day busi­nesses and or­gan­i­sa­tions are en­cour­aged to dress in their fes­tive fin­ery and staff and cus­tomers are able to con­trib­ute to the Mayor’s Christ­mas Ap­peal through a gold coin do­na­tion,” Cr For­man said.

“All of the do­na­tions are dis­trib­uted through Sal­va­tion Army and St Vin­cent de Paul So­ci­ety to pro­vide food ham­pers, vouch­ers and toys to fam­i­lies in need dur­ing the fes­tive sea­son,” he said.

“It’s an op­por­tu­nity to enjoy fes­tiv­ity and fun with your work col­leagues while making Christ­mas all the mer­rier for those less for­tu­nate.”

Cr For­man said busi­nesses that reg­is­tered re­ceive a poster to dis­play and a money tin la­bel to as­sist in cre­at­ing a pro­fes­sional do­na­tion tin to dis­play on Go Christ­massy Day.

Head to bund­aberg.qld. gov.au and look for the 2015 Mayor’s Christ­mas Ap­peal tab to reg­is­ter via the on­line form.
