CHRISTMAS is all about spending time together with people who care about you, and the Chelsea Community Christmas lunch is all about making that happen.

Vanessa Heredia, one of the event’s organisers, said the lunch was a great way to bring together people who might otherwise be alone on Christmas day.

“The Chelsea Community Christmas Lunch team are a group of local families, doing what we can for our community to ensure nobody feels alone on Christmas Day,” Ms Heredia said.

“Last year we celebrated with over 125 guests, who not only shared a wonderful hot meal, but also enjoyed entertainment, music and an opportunity to meet others who may have otherwise spent the afternoon on their own.”

The event will take place at St Joseph’s Primary Hall in Chelsea on Christmas Day.

Unwrapped gifts for children can be donated at Ray White Chelsea until 17 November. O’Brien Real Estate will be collecting non-perishable groceries on the behalf of CCCL until 1 December.

Guests can register for the event through www.chelseacommunitychristmaslunch.org.au or by ringing 9772 2211
