Give a little more this Christmas

FOR the fifth year in a row, the staff at Ray White Yamba are hoping to give a ray of hope to those children less fortunate this Christmas.

Named the "Little Ray Of Hope" Christmas appeal, there is a Christmas tree in the foyer, and Ray White's Daniel Kelly said there had been great response in the past.

"Last year the floor was absolutely full. You couldn't move in here," he said.

"Anything big or small is great. It's mostly about getting something for the kids."

The presents can be left under the tree at Ray White, Yamba and marked with the appropriate age for a boy or girl, with gift cards available from the counter.

The presents are collected the week before Christmas and distributed by the local Rotary Club.
