Lunch aid for home­less

Southern Telegraph - - NEWS - Chloe Fraser

For most peo­ple Christ­mas is the sea­son for overindulging and feast­ing. But for oth­ers, af­ford­ing food is a strug­gle.

In the spirit of Christ­mas, the City of Rock­ing­ham Re­turned and Ser­vices League sub- branch and the Rock­ing­ham Ro­tary Club hosted a preChrist­mas lunch on De­cem­ber 19 in sup­port of the lo­cal home­less com­mu­nity.

Aus­tralian Home­less Ad­vo­cate chief ex­ec­u­tive Owen Farmer said he was de­lighted that the RSL had ral­lied be­hind the home­less­ness in Rock­ing­ham at a tough time.

Rock­ing­ham RSL’s Bob Cooper said the lunch had been in the works a few years.

“We hope it will be the first of many Christ­mas lunches and will be­come a yearly event,” he said.
