Wrapped in donation
Monday, 28th June, 2010
A local group of ex-service men have donated linen to St Vincent de Paul's Winter Appeal.
The Australian Legion of Ex-Service Men and Women Broken Hill sub-branch donated $500 worth of bed sheets and pillow slips to St Vinnies local branch.
"We do this every year, we give them 'x' amount of dollars worth of goods, usually to the value of $500 a couple of times a year," Legion president Bill Graham said.
Regional president of Vinnies, Phil Sky, said he was thankful for the many donations that had been made.
"We wish to thank the Legion of ex-service men and women for their donation in excess of $500 of linen which will be of great use to complement our blanket appeal and to be used in helping out our clients," Mr Sky said.
He also thanked the public and other clubs and service clubs for their generous donations and told people to "keep them coming!"
Mr Sky said that Vinnies also needed pots and pans for their many clients.
"Anybody having a cupboard full of these items may like to dispose of them by donating good quality saucepans and fry pans to help out with our clients."
He said that they may be dropped off to the Vinnies shop in Argent Street.
