Support for appeal
A $2000 donation to the Mareeba Mayor’s Christmas Cheer Appeal has been warmly received by Mayor Angela Toppin.
Mareeba Mazda & Mitsubishi has pledged the large donation to the Christmas Appeal which plays a critical role in ensuring that vulnerable and isolated people in the Shire can experience the joy of Christmas.
“This generous donation by David and Jessica Mete of Mareeba Mazda & Mitsubishi will go a long way towards supporting people in need in Mareeba,” she said.
“Contributing to the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal is a way for Mareeba Mazda & Mitsubishi to support our community,” Mr Mete explained.
“Each year we are involved in numerous events and initiatives to give back to this wonderful community and, this year, Jess and I wanted to find a way to support those who are less fortunate.”
Mayor Toppin thanked all residents and groups who made contributions to the appeal during 2022.
“Every contribution, no matter how small, makes a big difference,” she said.
“We want everyone to have a chance to celebrate Christmas without feeling stressed about not being able to afford the necessities.
“Assistance provided through the appeal is a gesture of goodwill and that adds a little cheer to what may be a difficult time of the year for some people in our community.”
Each year, council donates the proceeds of the Mayor’s Christmas Appeal to local community centres or non-profit organisations who are connected with those in need.
