Footy club kicks in for toy drive

A FOOTBALL club’s push to bring Christmas cheer to less fortunate children has already kicked a few goals.

More than 50 donations have been made to the Old Collegians Christmas Toy Drive, with volunteers looking for more contributions over the coming fortnight.

Organiser Scott Williams said poverty in the Warrnambool region may not be visible but was present nonetheless.

He said the toy drive would provide presents to families who struggled  to cover their grocery costs and electricity bills.

“We started two weeks ago and the response has already been pretty good,” Mr Williams said. 

“Warrnambool has a generous streak and people have been willing to help out.”

Mr Williams said the group was open to presents for boys from toddlers to teenagers.

“Whether it’s big or small, we’re happy to receive donations,” he said. 

“Doesn’t matter if it’s a present for the three-to-eight-year-old age group, right up to teenagers.

“We’ll gladly accept all donations.”

Toys and similar donations can be dropped off at Clinton Baulch Motor Group on Raglan Parade near the Caramut Road intersection.
