Care Day

Christmas will be a little brighter for many families this year, with hundreds of free food parcels, toys and clothes given away in Hampton Park.

People from Casey Life Church and Hampton Park Baptist Church have a partnered together in a show of support for the local community.
Many of the toys and clothes were donated by members of the two churches, bringing to reality the words of Jesus, "it's more blessed to give than receive."

Dozens of volunteers have assisted with the packing of food parcels, and to bring a friendly smile on the day.

Pastor Graham Shand said that the "Care Day" was "a practical way of letting people know that we care, particularly during the Christmas season."
