The Joondalup Christmas Lunch is an event to provide a free Christmas Lunch to local community residents who have nowhere to go, have no family, are lonely or who cannot afford a meal of their own, or are isolated on Christmas Day. The need for such an event in the City of Joondalup is shown by the numbers of people attending the inaugural event in 2008 (over 250), increasing to over 500 people attending in 2009, and again in 2010, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16 and 17. Our event compliments all other Christmas Day lunches held in the metropolitan area. The numbers of people attending show the need for such an event.
The day consists of providing a sit down Christmas lunch to white linen draped tables with white crockery and shiny cutlery, in a wonderfully decorated atmosphere representing the Christmas spirit. In addition activities will take place during the event to keep the guests entertained and add to the festive occasion.
