Bishop’s An­nual Christ­mas Ap­peal

Broome Advertiser - - News -

It’s that me of year again, where we ask the peo­ple of Broome to give gen­er­ously to Bishop’s An­nual Christ­mas Ap­peal. Last year 160 ham­pers were de­liv­ered around Broome on Christ­mas Eve. These ham­pers pro­vide food to those who may oth­er­wise have noth­ing to eat over the Christ­mas pe­riod. Fol­low­ing the 2017 ap­peal, Bishop Saun­ders, who dis­trib­utes the ham­pers, said, “Once more we are able to en­hance the well­be­ing of fam­i­lies in Broome who are in need at Christ­mas me. This was pos­si­ble be­cause of the gen­eros­ity of the many peo­ple in Broome who do­nated food stuff for the ham­pers at the ma­jor gro­cery out­lets in Broome … I know per­son­ally of fam­i­lies that would not have eaten but for the fact that the ham­pers were de­liv­ered on Christ­mas eve as al­ways.” Dona ons can be made at Our Lady Queen of Peace Cathe­dral, the Chancery Of­fice and in marked boxes at su­per­mar­kets around Broome.
