Community dug deep for Christmas

By David Rak

Thank you to the community of Seymour and district for supporting A Little Ray of Giving from Ray White Seymour and Euroa.

The Little Ray Of Giving campaign was supported by the community extremely well to the point the staff were overwhelmed with the generosity shown to embrace the giving season.

The ladies from Maisies cafe in Seymour are always the first to add their 40 gifts as they know our campaign and are organised in November every year.

A large number of people donate multiple gifts.

The large company of Godolphin encouraged all their 36 staff to donate.

A little girl came in with her mum; she had bought a number of presents from her pocket money and proudly put the tags on and placed them under the tree.

An older couple donated two pushbikes — which they have done during the past three years we have been involved.

St Vincent de Paul picked up 145 presents from the Ray White office on December 12 and Santa handed them out to the families to offer them a shining ray of light for the festive season.

The Euroa office collected more than 60 presents for the Rotary Club to distribute.

It was a really simple way to put a smile on the face of someone who might otherwise go without at Christmas, and just a small gift can make the biggest difference to families who are struggling at an expensive time of year.

The Staff at Ray White Seymour and Euroa would sincerely like to thank the community of Seymour and Euroa for showing their support to the campaign and would like to wish everyone all the best for the new year.
