The annual Christmas Collection by the Rotary Berwick & District Benevolent Society kicked off on Thursday 28thOctober, with three Collection Cages being placed at Eden Rise and Berwick Square Supermarket sites, as well as St Margaret's School.
The three "Masketeers" Laury Gordyn, David Anderson and Sam McCurdy delivered the cages using Laury's car & trailer, while taking care to follow current COVID precautions.
This year will see eight local schools and the two Supermarket sites involved in the collection of donations of food, toys and books. 
The donations will be picked up in the first week of December and delivered to Casey North Community Information Support Service (CNCISS), where they will be organised into Christmas hampers for distribution to those in need within the local community. 
The hampers should certainly make Christmas a lot happier for the recipients.
