Sharing the joy of Christmas with Monaro families

Staff at Boyce Chartered accountants created some Christmas cheer last week when they gave up their time to sort and pack the Salvation Army Christmas hampers for those less fortunate in the community.

Captain Louise Nicholson said 100 families would receive the hampers which will be going all over the region, including Cooma, Jindabyne and Bombala, and about 300 children will get a gift.

"The Salvation Army have always cared about people in need, and we just want to see a smile on every child's face at Christmas," she said.

"All the food and toys have been donated from schools and preschools across the Monaro and Snowy Mountains.

"Boyce Chartered Accountants have donated lots of gifts and provided their time to organise and pack the hampers, while Anytime Fitness gave a huge donation.

"Mainstreet Clothing sponsored advertising to let people know we had a Christmas drive."

Captain Nicholson said she was very grateful to Alicia Clarke and Simon Bolton from Mainstreet for their generosity.
