Each year on Christmas day over 2000 individuals from across Perth and beyond gather together in Wellington Square to share Christmas Lunch in the Park.

The purpose of the event is to connect, share, encourage and build community especially for those who may be experiencing loneliness, financial difficulties, family struggles or are without family.

This will be our 39th year of Christmas Lunch in the Park and we are preparing for the best year yet. Food, gifts, entertainment, carols and lots of Christmas cheer are all in store and we hope to share it with you.

This event wouldn’t be possible without the continual support from our community, friends and family. So we would like to invite you to help us through donating, volunteering, sponsoring, fundraising and spreading the word about this special event.

Christmas Gifts

A favourite aspect of Christmas Lunch in the Park is our gift giving. Where smiles, joy and surprise emerge on the faces of both the young and old guests we have the pleasure of being able to serve. As we try to personalise our gifts by breaking them up into age groups, it is really important we manage our donations and make sure every age group attending the event will be given an appropriate gift. Therefore here are the current levels of our Christmas gifts for this year.
