Nwsltr 17 – Christmas Appeal

As the festive season is fast approaching, can we ask you to spare a thought for those people in Rockingham less fortunate than ourselves.

In 2019, East Waikiki families donated 2 large shopping trolleys to the Local Christmas Appeals, and we are hoping to do even more this year. To make up these packages we are looking for donations of common items which are a treat for these people. When you next go shopping, please consider purchasing a few extra items to contribute to our donation. Trolleys will be left in the wet areas of each block for your child to drop off any donations which will need to be made between Monday 23rd November and Friday 11th December. Below are some suggestions, but feel free to use your imagination :


Roll on deodorant

Shaving cream (non aerosol) Soap

Small bottle of talcum powder Disposable razors
