SWIM into the Christmas spirit at the Mossman Pool and help fill the pool with toys for local families that may need a little extra support this festive season.
The Mossman Pool has launched its second annual Toy Dive – a splashed-up twist on a traditional toy drive – to contribute to the 2022 Mayor’s Christmas Appeal.
Douglas Shire Council is encouraging donations of new unopened children’s presents and toys for kids which can be dropped off at the Mossman Pool during opening hours.
Those who drop off donated toys will receive free pool entry.
Douglas Shire Mayor Michael Kerr said the pool overflowed with toys and support from the community during the inaugural toy dive last year.
“More than 175 toys were donated, and our team were absolutely chuffed to help families make a more memorable Christmas morning,” he said.
“The Mossman Pool team see many children come through the doors and it is saddening to think some may go without a gift under the tree this Christmas.
“The Toy Dive is a way that we can directly connect with families that could use a little help to brighten up their Christmas.”
To donate to the Toy Dive and come for a free swim, bring your unwrapped toy to the Mossman Community Pool located at 1 Park Street Mossman, and help them fill the Pool!
