Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Sharon Zacher has been coordinating the TOYS program (standing for Together Offering Your Skills) at the Clarence Park Community Centre for the last 8 years of the program’s 30 year history.

There are currently 20 male and female volunteers who mend toys from kindergartens and schools, make and repair furniture items, build possum boxes, make bridge stands for people with arthritis, build protection boxes for a community radio station to keep their old turntables safe, repair wicker dolls prams for kindergartens and make props for local ballet and theatre groups. They are currently working on making a selection of wooden toys that will be on sale leading up to Christmas.

The TOYS shed is open on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday morning from 9.00 am to midday from February to mid December.
