Christmas cheer spread across the Murraylands
YOUNG people shared the festive spirit by taking part in the Communities for Children Murraylands Christmas tree decorating challenge facilitated by ac.care. Students from schools and kindergartens decorated white Christmas trees with themes of their choice, celebrating the festive season while being encouraged to practice team work, creativity and planning. “The ac.care Communities for Children Murraylands team loved seeing the creativity of the decorated trees,” senior program manager Teresa O’Brien said.
Blanket drive delivers winter warmth
MORE than 120 blankets and other winter warmers were donated to ac.care to support vulnerable people coping with cold conditions thanks to the TripleM and SAFM 96.1FM Limestone Coast 2021 blanket appeal. Community members and businesses dropped off items at the Mount Gambier and Millicent community centres, while the campaign also led to donations in the Riverland and Murraylands. The Rotary Club of Murray Bridge was among the significant financial supporters to back the campaign and help increase our support for country people at a challenging time of the year as the appeal extended across our regions.
