The Joondalup Christmas Lunch simply would not happen, if it wasn't for the generosity of the wonderful sponsors who support us in bringing Christmas lunch to those who are isolated and alone at Christmas. The Ramsay Health team at Joondalup Health Campus have been terrific in their support of the Joondalup Chrsitmas Lunch and we value them standing beside us.

Only 80 days til Christmas and we are really looking forward to another wonderful Christmas Day lunch with many special people. Guests and volunteer registrations are now open. This lunch for those who are isolated and alone would not happen without the amazing support of LOTTERYWEST, Ramsay Health Care and the City of Joondalup. Thank you
