Castle Towers has supplied the quality paper and ribbon.Volunteer co-ordinator Ruth Didsbury from the Hills Relay For Life said volunteers had been very generous with their time and shoppers had been very appreciative.

Donations have ranged from $1 to $50.Volunteers will be wrapping until Castle Towers closes on Christmas Eve.

You can find them at Level 3 at Castle Towers near Myer outside Peter Alexander and Sanctuary for Hair.
