Donations from collection tins across Northern Tasmania have helped The Examiner‘s Winter Relief Appeal raise almost $110,000.
The appeal supports four charities who help vulnerable people across the North.
The Launceston Benevolent Society, Launceston City Mission, St Vincent de Paul and the Salvation Army all get an equal share of the money raised.
In other news:
The goal for this year’s appeal was to raise 70,000 but with one month still to go $109,274 has already been donated.
Donations have come from all sectors of the community with some organisations, such as the Launceston Tornadoes, conducting charity drives and others raiding their club coffers to pitch in.
Collection tins have also contributed to the total with tins regularly being delivered fill to the brim with donations.
All beneficiaries of the relief appeal have committed to using the money to help people in need throughout Northern Tasmania.
At the launch of the appeal the charities told The Examiner with restrictions easing more people were seeking help and money raised through this appeal would help meet those needs.
You can donate to the appeal online via electronic funds transfer BSB 035822, account 011443537 or in participating stores.
