A HAPPY TIME FOR ALL: Help a family in need in your community this Christmas.

UPPER Hunter Shire Council Youth Services and Scone Neighbourhood Resource Centre will be providing Christmas gift hampers to individuals and families who are in need of a little extra help over the festive period.

You can help by donating charity Christmas gifts items that will go towards building a gift hamper for someone in need.

Through your support, you can help make Christmas a special time of year for those who are less fortunate.

Donations can be dropped off at any of the Upper Hunter Shire Council offices in Merriwa, Murrurundi and Scone or Scone Neighbourhood Resource Centre  up until 15 December 2017 for inclusion in hampers.
