Canning Gazette - - NEWS -

ST John Am­bu­lance staff and vol­un­teers have do­nated more than 700 Christ­mas presents to dis­ad­van­taged chil­dren and young peo­ple across the state that will be dis­trib­uted by Angli­care WA.

Angli­care WA chief ex­ec­u­tive Mark Glas­son said the gifts would bring much­needed cheer to count­less fam­i­lies do­ing it tough.

“More and more fam­i­lies are strug­gling to make ends meet in WA and are seek­ing our help to keep a roof over their heads or to buy food and pay bills,” Mr Glas­son said.

“These do­nated presents will en­sure chil­dren and young peo­ple still share the joy of open­ing a present on Christ­mas morn­ing.”

St John chief ex­ec­u­tive Michelle Fyfe said not only did St John peo­ple all over the state vol­un­teer to pro­vide vi­tal com­mu­nity ser­vices, they were of­ten the very same peo­ple who ral­lied when there was a cause or need in the com­mu­nity.
