UNITING Wimmera started its Christmas appeal and is calling for donations of gifts. 

The Christmas appeal – give a little, it means a lot – will accept donations until Christmas Eve and people can donate at the Uniting Wimmera office at 185 Baillie Street, Horsham. 

Uniting Wimmera chief executive Wendy Sturgess said Christmas was meant to be a wonderful time of the year for everybody. 

“Last year, thanks to the wonderful support of people throughout the Wimmera we gave out 491 gifts, $1430 in gift cards and more than $6500 in cash donations, spreading the joy of Christmas far and wide,” she said. 

People can also make donations at any Target store as part of the Uniting Christmas Appeal, or drop them off at Toyworld Horsham, Country Essentials Warracknabeal or West Wimmera Health Services allied health department in Nhill.  

“Alternatively donations of non-perishable food items can be delivered to the Christian Emergency Food Centre in Horsham or cash donations can be made by visiting www.givealittle.org.au,” Ms Sturgess said.
