Church prepares Christmas feast

THE homeless and disadvantaged will have the opportunity to celebrate Christmas this year, thanks to Yamba’s Wellspring Christian Church.

More than 50 Clarence Valley people have already secured their spot for the free lunch to be served at the Treelands Drive church on Christmas Day, noon-1pm.

Wellspring church administrator Rochelle Scott said she was confident that this year’s lunch would be as successful as the past five on a Christmas Day.

“We aim to provide a place where people can come together to celebrate Christmas with friends and good food,” she said.

“It’s vital to have somewhere for people to come when they are struggling financially or if they don’t have any family around them.”

Food donations for the luncheon came from businesses within the Clarence Valley and through the hard work of church staff and volunteers.

Any organisation hosting a special meal or event over the Christmas period should contact The Daily Examiner and we will publish your event in tomorrow’s edition.
