The committee of Hepburn Regional Community Cheer offer our sincerest thanks and wish to acknowledge everyone who contributed to an outstanding Day of Giving on 19th December 2023.

On the day 256 adults and 97 children, all vetted by Central Highlands Rural Health, received a total of $69,000 in food vouchers.

The vouchers were sourced from locally owned businesses, Daylesford Meat Co., Tonnas, and Bakers Delight. Vouchers were also purchased from Coles.

We also provided funds for two musical performances for the residents at Lumeah Lodge.

Over 900 toys were given out on the day, shared between the 97 children registered for the Day of Giving, the children at Daylesford Community Childcare Centre and Odyessy House.

In terms of giving, the funds distributed this year were up 50% on the $46,000 in 2022 and we donated many more toys to children than in any previous year.
