Christmas has its up­side, oddly enough, for Paws and Claws. Coconut has heard that the fes­tive sea­son’s gift giv­ing added up to a busy time at the While­away book­shop and many peo­ple took ad­van­tage of the $2 gift wrap­ping ser­vice. It’s a bar­gain. And all of that money goes to the an­i­mal shel­ter. In the past two years the While­away’s gift wrap­ping had added about $2000 to the much needed kitty for Paws and Claws. Mean­while, the Christmas raf­fle run by Ann Ire­land has come up with $3500. Mon­day when she saw some­one she be­lieved to be the same man. She re­ported the sight­ing to po­lice who ar­rested the al­leged “snow­drop­per”, a 52-year-old North Mel­bourne man. He was charged with a num­ber of of­fences in­clud­ing theft, han­dling stolen goods and tres­pass.
