Christmas cheer for the less fortunate

01 Feb 2017

Christmas cheer for the less fortunate Image

Docklanders gave up their Christmas morning to provide some joy to more than 200 less fortunate people again this year at NewQuay’s Cargo restaurant.

What a wonderful day it was! Cargo was buzzing with happiness, energy, laughter and the spirit of giving. 

Guests (more than 200) and volunteers were greeted with beautiful sunshine and the Salvation Army Brass band. 

A few of the Blue boys and girls from the Carlton footy club helped out, keeping guests entertained and ensuring everyone had something to drink and a full plate. 

With a hot and cold breakfast buffet on offer along with and pastries and turkey there was plenty of food and beverages for all. The feedback from all guests and volunteers was truly heart-warming. 

Cargo volunteers, staff and their families (both big and small) all worked hard to ensure the morning was a success. 

This year Cargo teamed up with charity Pay a Sack Forward to provide each guest with a hamper containing both food and personal hygiene items.

The Cargo team thanked all the generous supporters, whose compassion, care and drive made it possible for others less fortunate to enjoy their Christmas.
