A shop that accepts donations of new presents and gives them away for Christmas will be operating at the Ocean Shores shopping centre from December 17.

Organiser Dennis Stevenson said, ‘Any new items are very appreciated: toys, furniture, things for bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, lounge, study, playroom, garage, beach, camping, clothes and accessories for all the family, sports, electrics, plants, crafts, travel, vouchers for free professional services, and Christmas hampers’.

‘In fact, anything brand new!’

It’s the third year in a row the shop has opened in Ocean Shores, and during the year Dennis also ran the Bruns Store in Banner Park at Brunswick Heads, which operated on the same principle.
