Newcastle Basket Brigade Packing Day – Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th of December


Newcastle Basket Brigades 2016 Packing Day was held on the 10th and 11th of December at BINI Shell Hunter School of the Performing Arts, Broadmeadow. This year we were able to pack 800 baskets to bring hope and cheer to over 2700 residents in and around Newcastle this Christmas which was 100 more than we were able to pack last year, an amazing effort.

Many thanks to all those individuals and businesses who donated food, presents and money as well as to our fantastic volunteers. Special thanks also goes out to the following businesses as without them the day would not have been as a fantastic success:

  • Bunnings Warehouse
  • Norm at Acrobat Removals and Storage
  • Newcastle City Council
  • BINI Shell Hunter School
  • Storage King Newcastle
  • Grill’d Kotara
