Residents of the Aveo Botanic Gardens Men’s Shed in Cranbourne, Victoria have again been hard at work designing and crafting up to 150 wooden toys as part of the Salvation Army Christmas Appeal.
From rocking horses, dolls cribs, trains and cars, all the toys are handmade and will bring much cheer this Christmas to disadvantaged children.
Men’s shed spokesman Garry Cahill said that wooden toys stand the test of time and can be passed down from generation to generation.
The men’s shed is a hive of activity all year around with other projects such as building a billy cart for the local scouts group as well as repairing furniture for the residents within the community.
