Helping hand on Christmas Day

Posted: 8am 10 Dec 2020

The Lakes Anglican Church at Mango Hill will be firing up the barbecue again on Christmas Day to help those in need.

It will be the fourth year of the church’s free Community Christmas Day Meal for those who may be struggling financially, separated from family and friends or disadvantaged.

All are welcome to share a meal, have some fun and celebrate on Christmas Day from 4-7pm at the Halpine Dr church, by the new YMCA.

Donations needed

Father Dan Berris, Minister at The Lakes Anglican Church, said food donations would be welcomed and a blow-up bouncy castle which would be among the range of activities.

“We would love it if people could donate, we’re hoping for a good turnout this year,” said Father Dan.

The event has some volunteers, more are welcome, and members of The Garrison will run the barbecue.

Market time

The Lakes Anglican Church also has the second of its market days on Saturday December 19, from 7am-11.30am at Halpine Dr. Stall holders are welcome.

“It’s about locals helping locals, bringing the community together,” said Father Dan.
