Seniors enjoy Christmas spirit
SOME local senior citizens had a blast celebrating Christmas in July at Manna in Victoria Park recently.
Manna was started by Bev and John Lowe in 1996 when they saw a group of homeless people in a park.
They began providing meals for them. In 2001, they introduced their school breakfast program and in 2011, they introduced their special function for seniors.
They now hold about five senior lunches a year with about 150 people attending each one.
