Volunteered this Christmas for the Exodus Foundation’s annual lunch for 3000 homeless and disadvantaged people.
A very hot day and fabulous atmosphere. Starts with a church service, then lunch (served for three huge groups of people at different times) in a big marquee. Great entertainers sang Carpenters, Nancy Sinatra and Johnny Cash songs.
The volunteers are fun to hang out with and we sang Christmas carols during our breaks. Father Christmas had a lovely decorated grotto and distributed donated presents. At the end of our shift, we got a free Christmas lunch of turkey and cranberry sauce, ham, veggies, salad and choc cake for dessert!
