Northern Beaches Kids Send Care Packages to our Troops Serving Overseas

Children from the Belrose Children’s Centre have given their special touch to the Anzac Day 2018 commemorations by sending personalised care packages to military personnel currently serving our country overseas.

The packages contained an assortment of items including Tim Tams and Vegemite and were decorated with the children’s ‘poppy artwork’.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said the packages were a wonderful initiative from the children and their families.

“We all at Northern Beaches Council support our troops serving overseas and the important work they do. I am sure these packages will be gratefully received by our men and women stationed around the world.

“It’s really important for our younger generation to know the courage, mateship, skill, and perseverance of those who have served, fought, and given their lives in the military,” Mayor Regan said.

The idea behind the special packages came out of a discussion the children had about how they could do something meaningful to commemorate Anzac Day.

Distribution of the packages was arranged through the Australian Defence Forces (ADF) and Australia Post.

Children at Dee Why Children’s Centre captured the Anzac spirit by making a large poster for the centre’s foyer so that all families could understand the significance of Anzac Day. The poster included stories about the importance of remembrance.
