About the charities 

Act for Kids is an Australian charity providing free therapy and support services to children and families who have experienced, or are at risk of child abuse and neglect. They have helped thousands of children and families for over 30years. Their services include, integrated therapy, support for vulnerable families, education services, residential services and special workshops to empower kids and safe houses in remote Aboriginal communities.

MacKillop Family Services exists to support, foster hope, and promote justice for children, young people and families, particularly those who have experienced distress, disadvantage and abuse. Each young person and family they work with is protected, nurtured and given the chance to build a brighter future.

Liverpool Plains Shire Council- This year we will be supporting our Sister City Partner in Quirindi by donating gifts to children of families in need during this difficult time. The drought in NSW has had a significant financial impact on families in all regional areas. This Christmas we hope to bring back their smiles with our donations.
