Belgrave Christmas Food Drive

Many of the traders in Belgrave are giving us a helping hand to make Christmas as good as possible for those in our community who are going through a hard time. So you can support us and local shops at the same time!

Our thanks go to the following traders who are the drop off points:

Kaiyah Eclectic Emporium, Belgrave Book Barn, Belgrave Pharmacy, Commonwealth Bank, Little Rebellion, Grunge Cafe, Curves Belgrave, Belgrave Picture Framing.

Many thanks to Seagull Press for printing the posters promoting the food drive around town, and Bills of  Belgrave for promoting the drive.

Getting ready for Christmas

Hi all. We know it’s early, but we need to start collecting presents for our Christmas Appeal. If anyone can donate new toys for children17 and under that would be greatly appreciated. We have a Giving Tree at the Belgrave Library, or you can drop presents off at our Emergency Relief building from 9 -12:30pm Mon-Fri at 1632 Burwood Highway, Belgrave (near the Cameo). We are collecting presents up to and including December 16th. Presents don’t need to be wrapped, as we need to display the presents on tables for parents to choose. Thank you very much!

Memorial

We are saddened by the recent passing of one of our volunteers, James Olsen. James, who we all knew as ‘Jim’, will be be sadly missed. He was a part of our team for many years and we have fond memories of Jim.

A memorial for Jim will be held on Saturday 28th October, 2017 at 1:00 pm at the Bell Tavern in Belgrave.
