The 2010 Christmas Hamper Project was very successful, thanks to the Kingsview Church family for their generous donation of food and toys.

Three community schools were also involved: St Maurice and Don Bosco Catholic Schools and Kipling Collegiate. 45 turkeys were donated through Pastor Darrin’s connections. Special thanks to Irving Tissue and Nathan Smith for their contribution. We reached more than 110 families, including 130 adults and 140 kids.

“Thank you” to all who helped wrap gifts, pack and deliver hampers: Dave and Katie Burgess, Ken Wilson, Aart Van Ewyck, Laura Tynes, Kasper Hinds and Dan Hasanalie; the Christmas Hamper Committee: Toby Jason, Heather Tynes, Laura Tynes, Lucy Biggs, Claudette Powell; and especially to Martin Bowen, project coordinator.
