A Time For Giving

Mareeba Shire Mayor Angela Toppin has launched the 2023 Mayor’s Christmas Appeal.

Each year, generous community members and organisations make donations which Council then distributes to local families in need with the help of Community Centres across the Shire.

Mayor Angela Toppin is encouraging residents to get behind the annual cause and donate to the appeal to assist those in need.

“I know that there are many opportunities to contribute to charities throughout the year, but the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal is a chance for our local community to help our local families and to make Christmas time just a little better for those in need.”

“We know that there are a number of local families and individuals facing challenges and we would like to be able to make a difference this festive season,” Cr Toppin said.

“I do sincerely thank you for considering this as part of your Christmas giving. If you have never donated before, I would like to ask that you consider making a small donation to the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal for the first time in 2023.”
