THERE is no need to be alone or go without this Christmas.
Whether solo or with family, you are invited to spend Christmas with new friends and family at the Clarence Christmas Brunch.
This will be a special Christmas celebration, open to anyone in the community, featuring a free gourmet brunch, gifts, entertainment and activities for young and old.
“No one need go hungry, be alone or miss out on celebrations this Christmas,” Clarence Mayor Doug Chipman said.
“Although it is a happy time for many, Christmas can also be a difficult or lonely day for some.
“Especially those who may have recently lost a family member or cannot participate in normal traditions due to other pressures.
“We are expecting to see double the amount of people at the Christmas brunch this year (at least 100) and there will be plenty for all.”
Following the success of the inaugural Christmas brunch in 2016, the committee has been planning for months to bring together this year’s event.
Generous donations have been made by many Clarence businesses to help make it special.
Entry is free and transport to and from the event can be provided if needed.
The brunch will be held on Monday 25 December from 10.30am to 12.30pm at the Howrah Community Centre, located at 11 Howrah Road, Howrah.
