Celebrate spirit of Christmas

MORE than eighty people came together at the Seniors Centre to celebrate the start of the Christmas season.

Woolgoolga Red Cross held its Christmas friendship afternoon tea last week to celebrate the festive season and to acknowledge their many volunteers.

Entertainment was provided by Woolgoolga Primary School choir which also distributed hand-made Christmas cards.

To end the day, the Northern Beaches Anglican Choir led the singing of several classic Christmas carols.

Attendees received a special wrapped gift, afternoon tea and a visit from the jolly big man himself.

People attending included representatives from several community groups including the Lions Club, Rotary, CWA, the Woolgoolga Shed with special guests Kevin Hogan and Tegan Swan making short speeches recognising the great work done by Red Cross in the local community.

The honour of cutting the cake was given to 94-year-old Joan McDonagh with the assistance of Karen Hogan.

Judy Boyle from Woolgoolga Red Cross said: "On behalf of Woolgoolga Red Cross we wish everyone a happy Christmas and look forward to see you at our next gathering."

With more than 110 members, the Woolgoolga branch has the largest membership in NSW.

Their next gathering will be held on Friday, February 24.
