Mayor’s Christmas Appeal

Local businesses, community groups and residents are being encouraged to donate gifts to the 2015 Mayor’s Christmas Appeal for distribution to aged care facilities in the Lithgow Local Government Area.

“I’m very excited to be part of such a wonderful program”, said Lithgow City Mayor Councillor Maree Statham. “The appeal is an opportunity for our community to come together and reflect on Lithgow’s great community spirit”.

“Each year we have seen the appeal grow through the generosity of the local community” said Mayor Statham. “Donations of gifts that provide visual and sensory stimulus suitable for Alzheimer’s patients, non-allergenic personal care products or soft lollies and chocolates are greatly appreciated”.

“Monetary donations are divided equally among the four nursing homes for the purchase of much needed equipment”.

“All donations of wrapped gifts with a male or female tag may be dropped off at Council’s Administration Building or any one of Council’s libraries”.

“This year Christmas will be coming a little early for the residents and will be distributed at functions held at the local nursing homes on the 18th and 19th of November” said Mayor Statham.  “So please deliver your kind donations for the appeal to one of the drop-off points by Friday 13 November”.

For further information on the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal, phone Council’s Administration Office on 6354 9999 or go to Council’s website www.council.lithgow.com.

Supporting and celebrating the lives and achievements of our senior resident’s forms part of Council’s Caring for our Community strategy in the Community Strategic Plan 2026.
