On Monday 7 December, I delivered nearly 200 items to the Smith family Toy and Book Appeal that were donated by the North Ryde Community to the Tree of Joy this year.   Thank you to Bernie and Peter Mason who helped with the sorting of the gifts. Our next delivery of toys and gifts will be to the St Vincent De Paul Society at North Ryde later this week. We have extended the Tree of Joy closing date to Wednesday 16 December.
Thank you to everyone who has so generously donated to the Tree of Joy and to Cox's Road Mall, Bendigo Bank, Caffe InContro, Ritchies IGA and North Ryde Pharmacy for their ongoing support of the Tree of Joy. Thank you also to our wonderful helpers Liane Corbett, Victoria Crawford, Bernie and Peter Mason, Rob and Carolin Wilkinson and Allan McNallty who have regularly collected the gifts from the Tree of Joy and placed them in safe storage, which has been generously provided to us by Jason Hodge from St Michael's Mission.
