December 25: Samaritans Christmas Lunch

Date / Time

11:00 am - 2:00 pm — 25/12/2018

No plans for Christmas Day?

Join Samaritans for a community Christmas Lunch!

This year the lunches will be held at three locations in Newcastle, Central Coast and Singleton.

Newcastle’s largest Christmas celebration has been annually hosted by Samaritans for the past 17 years. Initially a simple lunch, it has since flourished into a remarkable event where guests enjoy a free Christmas Lunch, entertainment, friendship and of course a visit from Santa!
