A Christmas tree will be set up in Halyards for all members to donate a gift, gifts will be distributed to local organisations supporting children and familes in need. Gifts may include toys, non-perishables and gift vouchers. Its best not to beautifully wrap your gift as they need to be unwrapped to check on safety etc. Just place in a gift or brown bag, or simply add unwrapped. If you wish to contribute a voucher - please hand to Reception and clearly identify that it is for the Giving Tree.
So far contact has been made with Bear Cottage, the Manly Warringah Resource Centre (Women’s' Refuge) and Royal Far West. The Giving Tree will remain open for two weeks from First Friday.
