Santa and his elves have been busy in the sheds of Ballarat…  

The local Woodworkers Guild will hand over hundreds of hand-crafted toys to the Ballarat Christmas Appeal tonight.

Appeal Ambassador Peter Caligari says the group has made a large donation every year for at least the last 20-years.

“ Tonight it’ll be my pleasure to attend their presentation night to accept hundreds of toys for the less-fortunate families in Ballarat as part of the 40th annual Ballarat Christmas Appeal “ he said.

The public can also leave donations of new toys, non-perishable food and cash at our station (56 Lydiard St North).

Proceeds go to local families in need via Anglicare, Uniting Ballarat, St Vincent de Paul and the Salvation Army.
