Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

■ 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.
