Se­niors en­joy Christ­mas spirit

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

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.
