Ray White Heathcote celebrate eight years of Christmas giving

By Vanessa Wiltshire

THIS Christmas, Ray White Heathcote will continue its popular tradition of giving with the return of ‘A little Ray of giving’.

The inspiring Christmas campaign will see Ray White Heathcote partner with St Vincent de Paul Society to help disadvantaged people who need extra light in their holiday season.

The Ray White team are calling on the local community to embrace the giving season and dig deep for children who need it most.

“This is the eighth year that we’ve run ‘A little Ray of Giving’ and we want 2019 to be our biggest year yet,” said principal Brian Lawry.

“When you see our Christmas tree go up, we urge everyone who is able to bring in a gift or non-perishable item.

“All you need to do is drop your unwrapped present under the tree in our office reception.

“The ‘Ray of Light’ drive is a way to help put a smile on the face of anyone who may need some extra cheer at this time of year.”

Ray White Heathcote is located at 77 High St, Heathcote. Their special giving tree is in the front window and will be collecting gifts until December 14.

“It’s a really simple way to put a smile on the face of someone who might otherwise go without this Christmas,” said Mr Lawry, who added that just a small gift can make the biggest difference to families who are struggling at an expensive time of year.

Ray White has run this initiative across Australia and New Zealand each December since 2012. Last year more than 300 offices across Australia and New Zealand helped collect 30,000 gifts for disadvantaged families this Christmas.
