Platform Youth Services workers (L-R) Cassandra Scott, Flinn Donovan, Amanda Barnes and Jace Den helped distribute the Blue Mountains Youth Council’s ‘Giving Tree’ gifts, kindly donated for young people in need in the Blue Mountains and surrounds for Christmas.
The Blue Mountains Youth Council worked with the community to collect 71 gifts through their Community Christmas ‘Giving Tree’ drive for 2016.

Mayor, Cr Mark Greenhill, said, “A big congratulations goes to the Blue Mountains Youth Council for the continued success of their ‘Giving Tree’ initiative. They are really showing us what great young leaders and ambassadors they are. I am also greatly appreciative of the community’s generosity and Christmas spirit by helping those less fortunate.”

Blue Mountains Youth Councillor Grace Faulder said, “Thank you to the community for donating so many gifts through the Christmas ‘Giving Tree’. Together we have been able to give presents to so many local young people in need.”

The gifts were collected through the Springwood Library and Council headquarters in Katoomba.

The Platform Youth Services organisation greatly assisted by distributing the 71 gifts to people between the ages of 12-25, in need during Christmas in the Blue Mountains, Penrith and Hawkesbury areas.

Leanne Reihana, Manager at Platform Youth Services, said, “The staff that passed on the gifts to the young people saw the look of anticipation and excitement on their faces when they were told that they had received Christmas gifts.

The young people that received the gifts were really happy and eager to see what was under the wrapping. I’m passing on their appreciation - ‘thanks so much guys’!”
