Items for the pack will be purchased, received as donations. Donations of approved items or funds will be gratefully accepted. Alternatively - raffle tickets can be purchased to support the project whilst being in the draw to win a 7 night holiday in Fiji!
“Your efforts are transformative and brighten the paths of many who deserve kindness and care in their lives. Seeing the Wishing Tree Project continue to grow reminds me that we work in a very caring and compassionate community….
with the help of all of you we have manages to keep the magic alive at Christmas. I would like to acknowledge this incredible achievement ---making a difference, one young person at a time” Heidi Tucker CEO, Anchor
This Christmas (2023) thirty-two Businesses and the local community participated in our 3rd annual wishing tree project.
Over 1,300 gifts for children ranging from 0-18yrs and $2,600 in gift cards were collected over November and early December from participating businesses and local donors.
The dream of the project was to make Christmas brighter for Children and families doing it tough in our local area.
Gift cards and presents were distributed through Anchor and the Lilydale Proactive Policing unit, with some donations also going to Dandenong Ranges Emergency relief service, Anglicare family services and Boorndawan William Aboriginal Healing Centre.
Anchor was able to give every child accessing their services a gift – with the message that the gifts had come from people in their local community.
The Lilydale Proactive Policing unit visited community housing, local caravan parks, individual families. Officers found the experience of bringing joy (with gifts) on their visits very positive and moving.
Rotary Lilydale ran their annual Primary School Speech Competition on August 30th. This event was generously sponsored by Community Bank  - Mt Evelyn . Thank you to all the students that participated for a wonderful evening and  very high standard of public speaking. The winning students then attended our club meeting to present their speeches with great animation and conviction. The Rotary district finals will be held on 15th November - we wish them a great night!
