Lithgow City Council is calling on the generous spirit of the Lithgow community to donate gifts to the 2018 Mayor’s Christmas Appeal for residents living in aged care homes across the LGA.

“The Mayor’s Christmas Appeal is an opportunity for the community to donate a small gift to elderly residents living in local nursing homes across the LGA,” said Mayor of Lithgow City Council, Clr Ray Thompson.

“Gifts such as crochet coat-hangers, soft smelling lotions, fluffy socks, comfortable slippers, Santa hats, personal cosmetic wipes, mind games like Scrabble, crossword puzzles, and Sudoko, and chocolate treats and cookies are greatly appreciated,” said the Mayor.

All donations must be wrapped, tagged with “male” or “female” and dropped off at Council’s Administration Building or any one of Council’s libraries by 26 November 2018. Gifts will be distributed by the Mayor at functions held at local nursing homes in December.

 “I’m very excited to be part of the 2018 Mayor’s Christmas Appeal”, continued the Mayor.  “I look forward to meeting the residents and staff in aged care homes in Lithgow and sharing in the generosity of our community. ”

For further information on the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal, please phone Council’s Community Development Officer/s, Viktoria Gulabovski or Kristy Lenon on 6354 9999.
