Supporting Local Charities

Most of us know that lending a helping hand or donating a small gift can make a huge difference to those less fortunate in the Gold Coast community. There is no better year to show your support than this one, with the devastating effect of navigating another year of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We have listed some charities that you can donate to or volunteer in the lead up to Christmas.
