PT's Anglicare Visit

I was delight to accept an invitation to pay a visit to Anglicare, along with some of my work collegues to go behind the scenes of the 3BA Xmas Appeal.

Anglicare is one of four centres that spend many hours putting together Christmas Food Hampers for families and Toy Bags for the many children around Ballarat who may not receive a gift from Santa this year.

 

As always it's not until you see the behind the scenes work, that you realize just what it takes to bring joy and happiness to a family that may not otherwise have the Christmas that we are used to seeing.

All toys are sorted into age groups and then a decision made as to what goes into each bag to ensure each child receives a little something that will put a smile on their face on Christmas morning. What you see in these photo's is only a portion of the toys that will be distributed to over 640 children this year.

I've lived in this town for over 30 years now and I'm still astounded by this cities generosity and how year after year, our community continues to support those who are less fortunate via the 3BA Christmas Appeal and other charity and fundraising events. So, from all of us at 3BA we thankyou so much for again supporting this great appeal. To those behind the scenes that make it all happen...your are the backbone of the appeal and are all superstars.

But, the job is still not done with yet. Donations of new toys, non-perishable food and cash are still required and can be left at 3BA at 56 Lydiard St Nth.
