Diamond Valley Gift Appeal

Diamond Valley Gift Appeal

The Diamond Valley Gift Appeal will provide gifts to vulnerable and disadvantaged people. Gifts will include children’s toys, food hampers, care packages etc. Gifts will be sourced from community donations and distributed to up to 600 people doing it tough. The Gift Appeal is a valuable community strengthening strategy and will engage local volunteers, encourage community donations, instil the give where you live concept and the ethos of helping our neighbours.
