CHRIST­MAS CHEER

The Tribune (NZ) - - CONVERSATIONS -

A big thank you to the un­known Christ­mas fairy who left a box of choco­lates and a thought­ful Christ­mas card for the vol­un­teers at the Red Cross Book Shop in Main Street.

The choco­lates were most wel­come as the Red Cross elves are very busy at the mo­ment with lots of peo­ple shop­ping for Christ­mas pre­sents. So many lovely books. Christ­mas, not just about fam­ily but also about the thought­ful­ness of strangers.
