Christmas Lunch

Every year, Community Friends has a community Christmas Day lunch where everyone is welcome. It doesn’t matter if you are homeless, struggling to make ends meet or James Packer or Gina Reinhart, you are welcome to our Christmas lunch.

It is a great way to spend time on Christmas Day and we would like you to come.

It is held at the small park in Boundary St West End (155 Boundary St West End). Near the corner of Boundary St and Russell St West End.

Officially, the lunch starts at 11am but we have people turning up from 9am.

If you can come and bring something to help share the Christmas spirit all the better. Last year, one little girl told me how she made these Rudolf biscuits. There was a sign that went with them that said they were “made with love”.

Some people like to bring presents for those that aren’t as fortunate as they are. If you would like to do this, please write the target group for the present on the outside. For example, “Present for girl ages 7 to 10 years old”. If you would like to bring Coles or Woolworths gift cards, please look for me on the day and I will make sure they are given to the right people.

If you would like to bring some food, please email me ( and let me know what you are bringing and how much you are bringing. This way I’ll be able to better organise the lunch.

Last year we had about 400 people in total turn up.

It is a very special day for me.

    Hi Mark,
    Peter (my husband) and I would love to come along to support your lunch and help on Xmas Day. We’ll bring a few gifts, and are happy to do whatever tasks are needed. Would an 11am arrival time work well? We are flexible.
    I’m on the Mgt Committee of Community Plus (runs West End Community House) and both Peter and I are very active in our local community of Yeronga.
    Looking forward to it.
