You can give the gift of joy

By David Rak

HEATHCOTE Real Estate and St Vincent De Paul are urging the local community to dig deep for their Christmas giving tree.

People are encouraged to place an unwrapped gift under the tree at Heathcote Real Estate to brighten the Christmas of those less fortunate.

Heathcote Real Estate’s Adrian Harris said Vinnies and Heathcote Real Estate had played a significant role in the traditional Christmas giving tree for the past four years.

“We encourage people to participate in this celebration of make-believe and contribute to the festive season for someone doing it tough,” he said.

“It will help as parents and grandparents reminisce on their childhood with their experiences of Christmas and continue them with their family and friends.

“If you are in the position to place a gift under our giving tree it will be gratefully appreciated and this will brighten up the face of a child and put the magic back in their eyes this Christmas.

“All gifts go to the local Vinnies and will benefit local families.”
