Organiser Michelle Kerr said the response from the community was once again great, with enough food collected for the more than 100 food parcels to be distributed to families in the area this Christmas.

Recipients can expect to receive a mix of canned food and staples such as rice and pasta, as well as chocolates, biscuits and gifts for children.

Ambulances, fire trucks, police cars and utes pulling trailers drove the streets of the area, while volunteers from local scout and guide groups were on foot to collect the goods from residents.
