The Rotary Club of Tamar Sunrise have donated $5250 to The Examiner's Empty Stocking Appeal, as a result of funds raised from Christmas activities held in the Brisbane Street Mall throughout December.
As part of "Love Launnie this Christmas", the club's Rotary Wrappers provided a Christmas Gift Wrapping Service for shoppers. For a small donation to the appeal the Club wrapped hundreds of presents during December.
President Eve Gibbons said the club wanted to find an avenue that not only raised funds for the appeal but also brought a sense of vibrancy and cheer to the Brisbane Street Mall.
