Gifts give Hed­land’s foster kids a lit­tle ray of sun­shine

North West Telegraph - - News - Robert Dougherty

Foster chil­dren across Hed­land are set to re­ceive ex­tra fes­tive cheer this year with a lo­cal ap­peal for Christ­mas presents.

Up to 200 presents were or­gan­ised for foster chil­dren aged 12 and un­der in Port and South Hed­land by a part­ner­ship of MacKil­lop Fam­ily Ser­vices and Ray White Port Hed­land, as part of the A Lit­tle Ray of Giv­ing na­tional cam­paign.

RWPH of­fice man­ager Dianne Lovell said all staff were in­volved, with plenty of wel­comed com­mu­nity dona­tions in­clud­ing a bag of presents do­nated by Just Phone Main­te­nance’s Adell Ger­ber.

“We like to put a smile on their faces; they’re de­serv­ing and it gets all the staff get in­volved,” she said.

“It’s part of the of­fice with ev­ery­one help­ing put up the Christ­mas tree and do­nat­ing gifts.

“Any­one in the com­mu­nity can do­nate.

“Ray White would like to thank Des Maloney, from Hed­land Em­po­rium, who do­nated two large boxes of toys.”
