VOLUNTEERS have been wrapping gifts at a Joondalup office for this year’s UnitingCare Target Christmas Appeal.

Glen Banks and a team of volunteers are using the conference room in North Metropolitan MLC Ken Travers’s office to wrap gifts donated under the Target Christmas Tree at Lakeside Joondalup shopping centre.

The appeal collects presents for northern suburbs families in need, and Ms Banks thanked those who had already donated.

“While we are in need of gifts for children of all ages, it is the teenage age group where we always run low,” she said.

To donate unwrapped gifts, place them under the tree at the department store entrance or deliver them to Unit 2, 1 Wise Street, Joondalup before December 23.
