A wonderful time for giving

CHRISTMAS fever has hit the Coffs Coast.

Last-minute shopping is taking place; people are dressing up and amidst the madness people have still found time to give to others in what can be described as a magical time of year.

Joon Howlett, pastoral care worker at the Uniting Care Church in Coffs, said that thanks to the help of the community, they have been able to distribute more than 80 Christmas hampers to families in need.

"It's a sad time of year for some, and this really makes a difference," she said.!

The Uniting Care Christmas Tree, pictured right, will remain out at the front of the Target store in Park Beach Plaza until Christmas Eve.

Although your contributions won't make it to a family on Christmas, they will be distributed throughout the year.
