There are families in the Crookwell area who could do with a helping hand this Christmas.

Crookwell IGA is once again taking part in the “Giving Tree” project, which helps share Christmas joy with others.

Take a tag from the tree, tick the appropriate box (Mum, Dad, boy, girl and the child's age) attach it to a gift you have bought (from any store) and place the parcel under the tree by this Friday, December 15.  

Family gifts can also be donated, such as a hamper or other items to be shared at Christmas.

St Vincent de Paul will distribute the parcels prior to Christmas to make sure many families will have a brighter Christmas this year.

More than 40 gifts were placed under the tree last year thanks to the generosity of local residents.
