It's starting to look a lot like Christmas

CHRISTMAS started early for ten children from Northcott when they were donated tablets.

Coffs Harbour Taxis heard about an outing organised by Northcott where they took kids out to visit the Botanic Gardens and play the popular game app Pokemon Go.

Northcott are a non-for-profit organisation providing help for people with disabilities through support and a range of services

"As a Christmas gesture, we thought we'd donate ten tablets to the people of Northcott who do such fantastic work with children," said Sebastian Livolsi from Coffs Harbour Taxis.

The tablets come with the pokemon go app downloaded on them, ready for the children to get outdoors and have some fun.

"For a lot of our children here the only way to communicate is through a tablet so this has a real importance to them in their life." Danielle Shaw.

Danielle said she knows the tablets bring joy to a lot of people as it can be financially difficult to go out and purchase them theirselves.

"There have been a lot of people who have worked very hard for this and for that we are very grateful."

"We try and do as much as we can to support them and things like this help.

In the Coffs Harbour office, Northcott support over 350 clients which is a constantly growing number.
