We know that Lane Cove is an incredibly generous community. We have received messages and Emails from In the Cove fans asking us how they can give this Christmas. We had a lovely message from a mother’s group asking us if we could help them find a family in need so they could deliver some Christmas Cheer.
We thought we would let you know about some of the things you can do this month to give someone a better Christmas.
Lane Cove Orthodontics will be collecting donations for the Salvation Army Christmas appeal between 1 December and 13 December. The Salvation Army has requested that gifts be unwrapped so that the parents can personally select suitable gifts for their child. Any donation big or small would be greatly appreciated. If you can’t make it to Lane Cove Orthodontics, you can drop off your presents at Lime Leaf Fruit Market and they will deliver them to Lane Cove Orthodontics

Are you a legend who likes to ‘Pay It Forward’? You can make a donation of an in-store purchase that will be added to Christmas hampers that Jack & Co are sending to the Delvena Women’s & Children’s Refuge in Lane Cove. It’s a great way of making Christmas just a little bit brighter for people who really need it. What’s not to love about that.
