Ballarat charities welcome major Winter Appeal donation


Food providers have received a major boost in a quest to feed needy families during winter.

Sixteen pallets worth of food has been delivered to a number of charities as part of the Ballarat Winter Appeal.

Salvation Army team leader John Cloner says the donation says the soaring cost of living means donations are more important than ever.

"We are having a lot of people present requiring fuel to get to appointment, we are also seeing larger households present and more food is required," he said.
