THE annual Mount Gambier Community Mayor’s Christmas Appeal was launched on Thursday night.
Elected members, local businesses, service clubs, community groups, families and individuals attended at Mount Gambier City Hall to support the initiative, which provides a united and direct local response to the needs of the community each year.
The Mount Gambier Men’s Shed presented 100 hand-made children’s toys as its contribution towards the 2017 appeal.
Mount Gambier Central received an outstanding contribution award at the launch in recognition of its support for the appeal during the past eight years.
