Christmas Tree project delivers cheer

The Christmas Tree Project is a staff-led initiative run from Castlemaine Health that delivers Christmas hampers to local families in need each Christmas.

Now in its eight year, the project invites Castlemaine Health staff to donate and pack non-perishable food and toiletries in festive hampers. The hampers are delivered throughout Castlemaine and surrounding areas to people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and clients of local family services.

Project coordinator, Lisa Jackson, a theatre recovery nurse at Castlemaine Health said: “This year we’ve packed a total of 55 hampers with donations of high-quality toiletries, seasonal treats and a huge range of food. It’s an amazing effort and we’re grateful for all the donations and time that help make this happen.”

The staff behind the Christmas Tree project would like to wish our community a festive season of peace, joy and kindness.
