Central Telegraph - - NEWS - — Glen Por­te­ous

THE Biloela com­mu­nity has shared its Christ­mas bless­ings this year by sup­port­ing the Angli­care CQ 2018 Christ­mas Adopt-A-Fam­ily Ap­peal.

Fam­i­lies and in­di­vid­u­als who face se­ri­ous fi­nan­cial hard­ship or so­cial dis­lo­ca­tion, of­ten through no fault of their own, are nom­i­nated by lo­cal char­i­ties.

This year has been a dif­fi­cult year for many Ba­nana Shire res­i­dents, with more fam­i­lies than usual fac­ing a tough Christ­mas.

Angli­care CQ cen­tre man­ager Deb­o­rah Von­hoff said the re­sponse by Biloela had been great but there were still some adop­tions yet to fi­nalise.

“It has been a re­ally good re­sponse to the Adopt-A-Fam­ily Ap­peal and thank you to ev­ery­one who has sup­ported it,” Deb­o­rah said.

“There are still about five fam­i­lies or in­di­vid­u­als left to adopt for Christ­mas and if any­one can come for­ward to help would be great.

“The gen­eros­ity and kind­ness when adopt­ing through this ap­peal will pro­vide joy to those who are find­ing it hard to make ends meet this Christ­mas.”

Deb­o­rah said Angli­care CQ would con­tinue to bring Christ­mas fes­tive joy and spirit to those in need of it.

Twenty-four fam­i­lies or in­di­vid­u­als have been adopted in this year’s Adopt-A-Fam­ily. If any­one would like to help, phone Angli­care CQ on 4992 2421.
