It has been a Wanaka festive season fixture for the past decade and this year will be no different.

Ray White Wanaka’s “A Little Ray of Giving” campaign traditionally involves the real estate agency partnering with Community Networks Wanaka to help families who may need some extra support and care during the festive season.

Ray White Wanaka owner Duncan Good said the campaign was always a highlight.

“It gives us a chance to bring the community together in a traditional way, in order to bring a smile and something special to those families who need it most this Christmas.”

Mr Good sad the past last two years had been difficult – particularly for already vulnerable groups.

“So this year’s A Little Ray of Giving is especially important to us, and it’s going to be a good way to let people in need of a little help know that their community supports them.”

Those who wish to donate a gift are asked to bring it in to Ray White Wanaka (unwrapped at Community Networks’ request) at 1 Helwick St.

Gift collection began yesterday and runs until December 17.

The gifts are stored on the premises and are collected by Community Networks.
