Every year the Adopt-A-Family for Christmas appeal brightens the lives of local families facing adversity at Christmas time. 

Nominated by local charities, the families seeking adoption faces serious financial hardship or social dislocation, often through no fault of their own. 2016 has been a difficult year for many Rockhampton locals, with more families than usual facing a tough Christmas this year. The Adopt-A-Family appeal is your chance to support these members of our local community in the true spirit of Christmas.

Once again, the Adopt-A-Family appeal is honoured to have Shane Webcke, former Brisbane Broncos, Queensland Origin and Kangaroo great as our Adopt-A-Family patron for 2016. Shane believes passionately in a 'fair go' for all and the importance of lending a hand to someone who may never be in a position to return the favour.

The Adopt-A-Family for Christmas appeal invites individuals, businesses, clubs, schools, families and workplaces to join together in making sure everyone around Rockhampton has a truly merry Christmas.
