We’re proud to be supporting The Smith Family with our regular sponsorship, and we hope you’ll join us by donating to The Smith Family’s Toy & Book Appeal!

We’ll be setting up a collection at the End of Year BBQ on November 28, so please bring along an unwrapped new toy* or book suitable for a child or young person (5-18) so that we can spread the joy this Christmas.

The Smith Family’s Toy & Book Appeal is an opportunity to help bring a smile to a disadvantaged child’s face this Christmas. Sadly, many children living in financial disadvantage will not receive a gift this Christmas.

The Smith Family has a long and proud association with Christmas. The organisation was founded in 1922 when five businessmen decided to deliver toys to orphans on Christmas Eve. This year, with your help, The Smith Family aims to deliver more than 36,000 new toys and 23,500 new books to children in need around Australia.

This gesture of goodwill ensures that all Australian families can come together at Christmas to share gifts and celebrate life. The Smith Family continues to provide opportunities for disadvantaged Australians to participate fully in society and we believe that Christmas is a time when all Australians should feel they belong, regardless of circumstances.

You can also donate via The Smith Family’s website.

* If donating a toy that requires batteries, please donate these also as often the receiving families do not have the extra income to spend on these.
