CHRISTMAS DRAWING COMPETITION
Thank you to everyone who participated in my E-Christmas Card Competition. My office was inundated with some truly remarkable artwork from Year 3 based on the theme 'What Christmas Means to Me'.
This year's competition was the biggest yet - almost 700 school children from 22 schools across the electorate took part.
All students should be very proud; the artwork this year was exceptional and made it very hard to narrow down the winning designs.
The 6 winning designs, along with the 20 runners up, can be viewed on this website on the Events page under News and Media: http://www.swanmp.org/index.php?id=548
Congratulations again for your marvellous efforts in showing me what Christmas means to you and your family.
DONATE FOR A WORTHY CAUSE THIS CHRISTMAS
As we take time out to enjoy the festivities within our local community and delight in the Christmas light spectacular with our families, we should also remember those less fortunate who will be doing it particularly tough this time of year. Remembering the Christmas spirit is also about bringing joy into the lives of those less fortunate.
This year, my office will again be acting as a drop point for Burnie Brae's Project Pantry. This vital service supports pensioners and families with emergency food assistance leading up to Christmas and through to the New Year.
Project Pantry is in its sixth year, providing over 700 seniors, young people with disability, individuals and families in crisis with groceries and personal care items. The ongoing success of Project Pantry is dependent on the support and generosity of businesses and members of our community, which means the more items donated, the more people this generosity can spread to.
We've only got a few weeks left before Christmas so if you are able to assist locals in need, please help this worthy cause - every little bit helps.
If you can donate any non-perishable foods to assist this program, please help deliver your "gift of Christmas" to my office in Nundah - 1162 Sandgate Road - and we'll make sure it reaches the people who need it most.
Last year's generous contributions from the community. Let's pull together to help Burnie Brae continue this vital service.
