The donations were the outcome of both a successful raffle and volunteer work by both community groups.

Red Cross member, Janet Baker, told NOTA, “We had a great christmas raffle.

“On behalf of the Red Cross I would like to thank all the wonderful local businesses who donated the great array of prizes.

“This year we teamed up with Boomerang Bags to pack and present our christmas toys and something for the mums at the refuge center in Coffs Harbour, which falls into our region.”

Boomerang Bag volunteers make great cloth bags, connect communities in the process and divert plastic waste from the waterways while promoting sustainable behaviour.

The raffle winners were: 1st Prize Colleen See; 2nd Prize Jenny Jones; 3rd Prize Karen Seaham – congratulations.
