Dorrigo folks show generosity to Advocate's Christmas appeal

FOR THE fourth year running, Bellingen Shire Council staff are taking part in The Coffs Coast Advocate's Adopt-A-Family Christmas appeal.

In fact the project has been so popular that for Christmas 2014, three local families including eight children are being sponsored.

Mayor Mark Troy gave a special mention to the big-hearted staff at Dorrigo Depot who have delighted everybody by collecting a bounty of goodies.

"I am always amazed at the generosity shown by our staff," he said.

"I know they are delighted to be able to help some of the families who are doing it tough this year.

"Christmas can be a stressful time for many people in our community and it is satisfying to lend a hand to those who may never be in a position to return the favour."
