Our end-of-year project was to collect soft toys and donate them to groups who could use them as part of supporting their communities at this time of the year. We ended up with a large collection which were sorted, washed and bagged for donation. We took a large bag to the Rowley Resource Centre, The Hoon Hay Foodbank, and the Phillipstown Community Hub. We were very happy to handover these cute toys filled with aroha to go to their new homes.

The drive was also featured in the December 15th edition of the Southern View, the full article can be found here.
