For over 30 years, Cassowary Coast Regional Council with the generous assistance of locals across the region, have dug deep and given overwhelming support for families and individuals who have needed support with the annual Christmas Appeal.
With the Cassowary Coast Christmas Appeal now open, Mayor Mark Nolan encourages the community to spread the Christmas spirit in a way our locals know best, by giving back to our region.
“Council is helping to facilitate the fundraising of Christmas donations on behalf of community groups who offer support and wonderful services for our community year-round.
“We need the community’s compassion and Christmas spirit to ensure everyone in our community is taken care of this Christmas. This is not just for the families in need but as importantly, we’re showing these hardworking charities how much we appreciate all they do.
