THE Clarence Christmas Brunch is on again this year, providing a space for people to meet, eat, connect and celebrate on Christmas Day.
A partnership between Clarence City Council, The Salvation Army Clarence City, local community groups, eastern shore businesses and volunteers, the Clarence Christmas Brunch provides everyone in the community with something to eat, somewhere to go, and someone to share Christmas with.
“This event is an important part of Christmas for many in our community,” Salvation Army Clarence City’s Major Joel Clifford said.
“Last Christmas we served more than 120 meals and had a team of over 40 volunteers.
“The impact of having a place where people can come and be a part of community, find friends, and experience the joy of Christmas cannot be understated.
“While Christmas is often a time of joy, we know that this is not always the case for everyone – having an event like the Clarence Christmas Brunch means that Christmas Day is a lot brighter for some in our community than it otherwise would be.”
To be held at the Howrah Community Centre from 10.30am-12.30pm on Christmas Day, the free event will feature live music, a visit from Santa, and plenty of delicious food to eat.
The Salvation Army Clarence City is seeking a volunteer kitchen team leader who can be involved in planning the menu and leading the team in the kitchen on Christmas Eve and Christmas morning.
For more information about the event, or to volunteer as the kitchen team leader, phone Joel on 0417 190 413 or email email@example.com
