We’re looking for you to purchase a small gift to contribute.
Like: Basic toiletries such as toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, moisturiser, sun screen, tissues, women’s hygiene items, comb, face washer. Thongs, hat or cap.
Adults: note paper, pen, jewellery, book, perfume, aftershave.
Children: small soft toy, ball, puzzle, card game, lego, activity book, coloured pencils.

Bring it along when you catch the Roadies each Monday, or drop it off at the 1079 Life studios, or at one of the Star Discount Chemists around Adelaide!
