A message from organisers:

We are currently planning for the 2016 Mayor’s Christmas Tree Appeal and we need your help.

Every year Townsville City Council supports residents to celebrate the festive season and understand that many people find Christmas a worrying and lonely time. In an effort to relieve that burden, the council runs the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Appeal.

This year, we aim to raise more than $110,000 in cash, gift and food donations, which will be distributed by local non-profit organisations.

This year our major fundraising activity will be a dodger raffle, allowing multiple opportunities to win with each ticket purchased. This year tickets for the raffle are $2 each making them very affordable for most households.

We are seeking support of local schools, day-care centres, community groups, and the business sector to assist in the fundraising efforts.

We are expecting that this year will see more requests than ever to support at a time when the community may not have the means to contribute as much as they would have previously.

Some ways in which you could assist the Appeal this year:

  • Donate an item to be used as a raffle prize
  • Host a sausage sizzle and donate the proceeds to the Mayor’s Christmas Tree Appeal
  • Host a workplace morning tea or chocolate fundraising drive
  • Host a donation bin (Food and Gifts)
  • Fundraise with your kids school or day-care, e.g. hold a read-a-thon or food collection challenge
  • Volunteer your time to one of the community groups assisting with the Appeal

Should you be in a position to assist, we invite you to contact the Mayors Christmas Tree Appeal at christmasappeal@townsville.qld.gov.au.

On behalf of the thousands of local families who benefit from the Appeal, we would like to thank you in advance for any support you may be able to provide.
