Veterans collect for the kids

The toy run will begin with a convoy on December 16.

The Riverton RSL has once again come on-board to collect toys from Riverton, Willetton and Lynwood to bring back to its Everyday Elves Workshop in Cannington for Communicare’s Christmas Appeal Toy Cavalcade.

On Saturday, December 16, a convoy of vintage military and first responder vehicles, along with the City of Canning rangers, will wind their way through the streets of Riverton, Willetton and Lynwood between 10am and 12pm, collecting toys for the children who use Communicare’s programs and services.

Riverton RSL Sub-Branch Club president John Connell said the vehicles would make their way back to Communicare’s office in Cannington to unload the toys.

“Once again we’re so excited to engage the community in the spirit of giving to stack the shelves of Communicare’s Everyday Elves workshop in time for Christmas,” Mr Connell said.

“We really hope the people of Riverton, Willetton and Lynwood join us in the streets on the day and donate new, unwrapped toys for children and teenagers of all ages.

“In these tough times, let’s all do our best to give children and families a reason to smile this Christmas Day.”
