Tin Can Bay Country Club Manager Brad Robb and his wife, Heather, helped Santa Claus this year, and they thank everyone who bought a ticket in the raffle
The Tin Can Bay Country Club held their annual Christmas Toy Raffle to raise money for families who need a little help with gifts. The club purchased all the toys raffled and the day was a great success raising nearly $4k.
Community Action Inc. then provided a list of children’s names and details of what they might like for Christmas. The proceeds of the raffle bought presents for each child and treats to make their Christmas Day special.
Community Action Inc. is a not-for-profit community organisation in Gympie who provide housing and support services for young people, women and children escaping domestic and family violence, as well as financial counselling and multicultural services.
The Manager of TCBCC, Brad Robb and his wife Heather, had the pleasure of buying and wrapping all the presents so they could be handed over to the registered charity well before Christmas.
They would really like to thank all the people who helped them shop at Gympie Central, Sharyn McCombe, the lovely lady at Priceline Pharmacy, the young girl at Surf Dive & Ski, the staff in Big W and Woolies!
Brad said, “A big big thank you to all the community of Tin Can Bay, Cooloola Cove and Rainbow Beach for supporting the raffles and to the wonderful staff and committee at the Club for their hard work and dedication.
“2020 has not been a good year for anyone, but knowing we live in a community that will still work together and help those in need is very humbling!” he said.
“It is just so special to think of all those faces that have been through so much, had a smile and some joy on Christmas Day.”
