Thank you for your generosity

Thank you to everyone who donated towards the 2019 Mayoral Christmas Gift Appeal.

Council staff have been busy over the last two days sorting presents into their gift boxes ready for delivery, and on Thursday 19 December the gifts made their way to their new homes. 

Mayor Volzke and his helpful elves delivered gift boxes to a number of individuals and families in the Stratford district who were nominated as needing a little bit of extra support this festive season.

Like previous years the Mayoral Christmas Gift Appeal has been very well supported by the community.

Mayor Volzke says, "We're very grateful for the extremely generous donations received. Everyone should be very proud of themselves for the kindness they've shown to their fellow community members."  

"Not everyone feels they can ask for help, but through confidential nominations from supportive family members, friends and the wider community, we can provide a little bit of cheer during what is often a challenging time of year for some."

"The smile on their face is worth more than any gift," says Mayor Volzke.
