Variety comes to aid of families
VARIETY Queensland is putting presents under the Christmas tree and smiles on the faces of children across the Gladstone region this festive season.
The charity is donating 100 toys, which are suitable for girls and boys up to 14 years of age, to The Observer's Adopt-A-Family for Christmas appeal in 2010.
Variety Queensland regional development manager Carly Quinn was delighted to take part in the appeal again.
“Last year we donated approximately 100 toys and we are so pleased to be able help The Observer … this year,” Mrs Quinn said.
“We like to give to as many different, needy families at Christmas time as possible and we found the campaign covers a large number of Gladstone families that really need our help.”
