With many households experiencing a financial squeeze due to the cost of living and increases in mortgage rates, charities are expecting more families to be doing it tough this Christmas.

Irrawang High School’s Lue Fagan told news Of The Area, “The Salvation Army in Raymond Terrace will collect our donations on 7 December and distribute them to the local community.

“This year we have been asked to collect non-perishable food items – or those with a long expiry date, and some Christmas things such as decorations etc, as other organisations are contributing clothes and toys,” she said.

The school’s student leaders spoke at a recent assembly, encouraging students to bring in whatever they could.

Vice-Captain Travis Lamborn said, “There are many less fortunate than ourselves in our community, let’s help to make many local families have a much happier Christmas.”
