To date we have 10 of our members who have signed up to be part of the Toy building crew. One of our sponsors, Sunshine Coast Home Building Centre
have donated literally hundreds of dollars worth of wood for the project.
If there are any people out there that would like to donate any materials we will only say THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
On December 10, 2007 the toy makers met with Chuck Cookney, Assistant Mine Manager at Construction Aggregates and Vicky Dobbyn of the Sunshine Coast Community Services. One hundred toys had been crafted by the members of the toy group. Ms Dobbyn gratefully accepted the gift and gave a sincere thanks to the members who made these toys. She also thanked Construction Aggregates for contributing the money towards the materials. Mr. Cookney in turn thanked the Suncoast Woodcrafters for their great work and said it was very rewarding to see a corporate donation so well spent.
A special thank you from the Suncoast Woodcrafters Guild goes to the members of the toy group: Ken Walker - Chairman of the toy group, Ed Auld, Dave Beauchesne, Ken Goddard, Tom Hourigan, Brian Lucas, Keith Stevens and Heinz Tigges.
