Four non-profit organisations are ready to wrap Christmas presents at the Bunbury Forum Shopping Centre this festive season after being chosen for the Wrapped with Love campaign.

The Leukaemia Foundation took to the wrapping station for the first week, with the Cancer Council, Cook Grow Eat Create and WA iSports to provide the service in exchange for donations until Christmas Eve.

Leukaemia Foundation volunteer Josie Scasserra said the campaign was a “win-win” situation for shoppers and the community groups.

“We are helping people out at this busy time and we are also helping the Leukaemia Foundation which is an amazing organisation doing fantastic work,” she said.

“When my husband was going through it, there was no support here and now we have so much but there is still a long way to go.”

The volunteers insisted no present was “too difficult” to wrap.
