Salvos serve seasonal feast
■ Prominent volunteers in the City of Karratha turned out to host a Christmas lunch at the Salvation Army centre last week.
The lunch is held every year and is open to everyone, including those who may be alone or in need during the festive season.
Four long tables filled with people from all walks of life as a band, including Salvation Army Captain Niall Gibson, played in the background.
Salvation Army Karratha thrift shop manager Jasmina Zec has been in charge of organising the event for many years in Karratha.
Ms Zec said the lunch was about getting the community together, no matter what people’s backgrounds.
“You can see the kids are happy, they’re running around the Christmas tree and people are talking to each other,” she said.
“I’m so happy to see the smiles on their faces.
“This is a good time to get together and celebrate the lord Jesus Christ.
“I have volunteers from everywhere helping out and places like the Sushi Bar helped with food.”
Ms Zec wished everyone a merry Christmas.
Foods such as stuffed turkey, ham, noodles, potato salads and desserts were put on the tables for guests.
