Thanks to the support and generosity of our readers, A Reader’s Heaven was able to donate a carload of soft toys to local first responders in the Lithgow region.
We were overwhelmed by the donations of teddies and soft toys that our customers brought in during our Teddy Bear Drive.
Last Friday, Jo and our daughter delivered the soft toys, first to the fire station near the bookshop.
The firefighters on duty took a third of the toys with thanks. They will share them with the children in need that they come into contact with through their service to the town of Lithgow.
After that, we made two more stops. We took a third of the soft toys to the police station and the last to the first responders at the hospital.
Thank you again to all of you who opened your hearts and donated your soft toys. Without you, these donations would not be possible.
And A Reader’s Heaven would also like to thank all of our first responders of the Lithgow fire department, the police station, and hospital who help people in distress.
