2019 Packing Weekend

Our Packing Weekend is just around the corner! Here's what you need to know.

PACKING VENUE

 

This year, we will once again be using Cannon Hill Anglican College (CHAC) as our packing venue. 

CHAC is located on the corner of Junction Rd and Krupp Rd, Cannon Hill (view Google Maps). 

You'll find us in the undercover sports area (known as the Tuggerah Centre), located at the end of Krupp Rd and Bent St. We'll have plenty of signs to direct you on the day. 

Parking is available on-site, with an overflow car park located on Bent St. Street parking is also available (refer to map).

PARKING & DELIVERIES

 

To avoid traffic congestion, we will have designated collection points for Deliveries this year (view map above).

 

If you are delivering baskets to the North & West of Brisbane, please use the north side parking lot, accessed from Krupp Rd (near Junction Rd).

If you are delivering baskets to South & East of Brisbane, please use the south side parking lot, corner of Krupp Rd & Bent St. 

If you are not delivering baskets to recipients, please keep these parking lots clear to allow other volunteers to get in and out quickly. On-street parking is available instead, along with an overflow car park located further down Bent St. 

Deliveries to recipients will begin on Sunday after all the packing is complete. The time for this can vary, but our aim is 12pm. Depending on how many deliveries you are making, and where you deliver, this could take 2 hours or more. Please schedule your time accordingly. 

WHAT TO BRING 

 

Please bring the following items with you on Packing Weekend:

 

  • Bottle of water

  • Hat

  • Wrapped Christmas gifts to donate (new gifts only please, we cannot re-gift second hand items). Please label your gift with the age range and gender it is intended for.

  • Scissors, sticky-tape, ribbon and Christmas labels if you will be wrapping gifts. We have plenty of wrapping paper for you to use!

  • Wear comfortable shoes and clothing (sitting on the ground may be required to wrap gifts)

FACILITIES ON THE DAY - PLEASE BRING $$$

 

We will have a coffee van available on Saturday and Sunday, and a BBQ on Sunday (please bring cash). There will also be music to get you into the festive spirit!

Young children can visit "Andy's Corner," where we will have some colouring-in sheets for them to help "decorate" our delivery boxes. Please note that children must be supervised by an adult at all times on Packing Weekend.

 

Some seating will be available for those who need it. Toilets will be open on site. Water bubblers also available.
