Kalgoorlie Miner - - NEWS - Te­gan Guthrie

Chil­dren are in­vited to bring their teddy bears and a Christ­mas gift to a pic­nic later this month in sup­port of the Sal­va­tion Army.

Draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from this year’s Kal­go­or­lie-Boul­der Com­mu­nity Fair, Kal­go­or­lie Metro Prop­erty Group is hold­ing a Teddy Bear Pic­nic at Ham­mond Park to col­lect do­na­tions for the lo­cal Salvos’ Christ­mas Ap­peal.

The real es­tate team de­cided to con­tinue its sup­port of the char­ity af­ter rais­ing $1000 for the Salvos’ Win­ter Ap­peal ear­lier in the year.

Sales man­ager Re­nee McLean said the team liked to sup­port a char­ity or two ev­ery year.

“Christ­mas is the time when a lot of fam­i­lies are do­ing it tough, so we thought it was an im­por­tant time to help again,” Mrs McLean said.

“We are ask­ing fam­i­lies to bring a gift for a girl or boy and place it un­der the tree just to bring hope to some of the dis­ad­van­taged kids this Christ­mas.”

The busi­ness will also be buy­ing food to do­nate to the Salvos and char­ity tins will be avail­able on the day for peo­ple to con­trib­ute.

The pic­nic will take place on No­vem­ber 24 from 10am to noon and will in­clude free bouncy cas­tles, face paint­ing, drinks and lol­lies.
