Toot for Tucker

Once again thank you citizens of Oamaru for your donation’s to the annual Toot for Tucker collection, which was held on Monday evening to gather non-perishable foods for disadvantaged North Otago families.
A mountain of non-perishable food was collected during the annual Toot for Tucker collection, organised by the Combined Churches Food Bank in association with other Lions clubs in the North Otago area and helped by St John Ambulance, the Fire Service, Oamaru Police, Air Training Corp Cadets, Scouts, St John Youth, Driving Miss Daisy and Southern Wide Real Estate, vehicles and runners for Toot for Tucker. We do appreciate your support.
It took drivers and runners about an hour and a half to cover the streets of Oamaru and Weston to pick up donations and thank the donors.
The response to the event shows the remarkable generosity of the community to help those in need.
This is a short-term help for people who are struggling to make ends meet. The ages may vary from 16 to 80 and the recipients range from single mothers, people without jobs, and people with financial problems.
The Oamaru Churches Foodbank is open every Friday from 10am until noon, including every Friday throughout the holidays.
The Foodbank is located at 4 France St.
For information on donating food, phone Bernard Wilkinson on 434 5514.
The Food Bank and North Otago Lions club would like to thank all those who helped and those who gave so generously.
