Giving is a family's special gift

Amelia (left) and Ellenor Crosbie extend a family tradition as they hand out treats to customers at Vinnies op shop in Warrnambool.

The two are great-granddaughters of Nell Dorney, who has been a volunteer at Vinnies  op shop for 39 years.

Mrs Dorney’s daughter Jenny McLean started the practice when she lived in Townsville and passed it on to her daughter Bianca Crosbie and granddaughters Ellenor, 8, and Amelia, 5.

Ms Crosbie said the gifts spread the Christmas spirit. Vinnies Warrnambool manager Kevin Bond said the Fairy Street store had received a good response to Vinnies Christmas Gift Appeal.
