Helping those in need for Christmas

RED and green are the theme colours, Park Beach Reserve is the location, and the time and date is 10am to 2pm on Saturday.

The occasion is Hot Dogs and Hampers in the Park, a collection of Christmas items for needy local families organised by the Quota Club of the Pacific Coast, in conjunction with a hot dog lunch for visitors and donors.

There will be hot dogs on sale for a gold coin donation, and Quota Club members will be collecting donated items for the hampers.

Quota Club member Dianne Egan said they were collecting non-perishable items to make into Christmas hampers to support the young local families of Burnside, especially disadvantaged woman and children.

"We are hoping to make up 24 hampers," Ms Egan said.

"We are looking for Christmas food items like Christmas puddings and tinned hams, but also basic food commodities so that these families can have a happy festive season.

"We are expecting people to donate individual items, but people are welcome to donate a whole hamper if they can and would like to and we do know that some people and groups are planning to put together a hamper."

Hamper and Hotdogs will be found at the Park Beach Reserve barbecue shelter near the surf club car park.
