Keeping Gippslanders warm

Mr Chester said, "This is a great cause to get behind and helps Gippslanders keep warm during the cold winter months. I encourage locals to purchase a blanket and help support this great cause and those less fortunate in our community."

Dimmeys Sale Manager Leanne Chester said local businesses were supporting the cause. "We've received support from our local Bunnings who are behind the initiative and have purchased $200 worth of blankets for the cause. It's wonderful to have the support of the community and work together to help those who need it most."
