Unfortunately, we have to let you all know that Packing Day 2020 has been cancelled due to the multiple restrictions currently in place. We tried to see if it would be possible later in the year but we ran into freight problems and the uncertainty even then that it would be possible. So we are now planning for next year!!
Thanks to everyone who have been collecting and sewing and knitting etc, etc. If you have no where to store what you have made, please let us know and we will arrange to collect it. Thanks also to those that had already put your names down to help at Marion UC to do the packing. Hopefully you will be available next year again.
We have notified all of the receiving sites of the situation and have had numerous responses back understanding the situation. It is truly a sad thing there will be 10 tonne less of goods that get into the indigenous communities this year.
