Taree’s Woolworths supermarket is spreading Christmas cheer during the month of December.

On Thursday, December 7 Woolworths donated a hamper full of essential Christmas goodies, including a ham, as while most of us will be enjoying time with our loved ones, some of our local heroes will be working.

Earlier in the week store manager Michele Tidyman visited the hard working Pink Ladies at Manning Hospital to provide them with Christmas treats.

Hampers will also be delivered to the police and ambulance services for them to share while working over the Christmas period.

“The idea is to provide some of the little treats we all enjoy on Christmas day, to those who will be working and may not get to enjoy.”

As part of the project, the team from Woolworths will prepare morning tea for the volunteers at Taree’s community kitchen.

For the Pink Ladies: Carol Fletcher, Betty Grant, Toni Erickson, Jeanette Unicombe, Dianne Jenkins, Taree Woolworths store manager Michele Tidyman and Corinne Lang, president of the Manning Hospital Pink Ladies.

Then on December 23 and 24, two families within the community who may be going through a hard time, will receive $250 worth of groceries, on Woolworths.
