Hosted by 250 community volunteers at the Newcastle Foreshore, the Samaritans’ Christmas Lunch in the Park will serve almost 1000 plates of festive food on Christmas Day this year.
This iconic event is dedicated to supporting those who may have otherwise been unable to celebrate Christmas: the lonely, the homeless, and those without family or money. An event for all ages, this Newcastle community initiative offers food, music, entertainment and a special visit from Santa.
As family provides the backbone for McDonald Jones, the Hunter business is privileged to be a sponsor of this year’s luncheon. This focus on family flows from the staff and business culture right through to the inspired home designs, which are specifically created for families to enrich and encourage a fulfilling lifestyle. McDonald Jones Homes are thrilled to be contributing to this local event to ensure no one is alone this Christmas Day.

We wish all a safe and Merry Christmas and wish you every happiness in 2017.
See you next year!
