Casuarina campus was abuzz with Christmas spirit, with the generosity of Charles Darwin University staff brightening the festive season for local children.

Piles of gifts, including teddy bears, dolls, sporting equipment and clothing, were placed under the Human Resource Services (HRS) team’s Christmas giving tree as part of their annual present drive.

CDU Director Human Resources Services Lee Upton said the gifts were presented to Northern Territory children’s charities in the lead-up to Christmas Day.

“HRS would like to thank CDU staff for the overwhelming generosity during our Christmas giving tree drive,” Ms Upton said.

“There have been more donations this year than ever before.”
