Ageing, Dementia & Disability Care Christmas Hamper Appeal

Can YOU help this Christmas?

Please help us bring some joy and make Christmas a wonderful time for those less fortunate than us.

Hampers can be packed in a shoe box, green shopping bag or a foam fruit box; nothing too big or it becomes a WH&S issue.

You may donate items every day of the week at St Hurmizd’s Cathedral office from 9am – 3pm to Mr Baroota Zia. Or every Sunday night from 7:30 – 8:30pm at SHAPS Staffroom. You may also donate via PayPal (, and the youth committee will purchase canned foods on your behalf. All items must be donated on or before 8 December, at our annual Youth Dine!
