Christmas at Cargo

05 Feb 2015

Christmas at Cargo Image

Local restaurant Cargo added some festive cheer to Docklands when it hosted the Salvation Army’s Christmas Day brunch.

The event was a team effort, with the restaurant’s staff, friends, family and suppliers contributing to a great start to Christmas Day for some of Melbourne’s less fortunate.

Around 100 guests attended the brunch and Cargo manager and part-owner Jerry Dimas said there was a great atmosphere.

“It was the social occasion more than the food. All the people who were here were just happy to have a chat,” Mr Dimas said.

“The Salvation Army organised gifts for the children and Santa made an appearance as well.”

“It was a really joyful occasion,” Mr Dimas said. “It was really festive.”

Cargo chef and part-owner Diana Desensi agreed and said the 30 staff, family and friends who took part in the brunch also got a lot out of it.

“I think everyone who came along to volunteer was really humbled by the experience,” Ms Desensi said.

“It was good to be able to give back,” Mr Dimas added.
