Rosies Sunshine Coast had a fantastic Christmas on the Street with in excess of 80 patrons and lots of Rosies red shirts celebrating together. Club Kawana continues their amazing support of providing and serving roast meats, vegies, plum pudding and custard. Our friends on the street were delighted in the array of tables laden with grocery items, ladies handbags full of personal items, hygiene packs, toys, cute stuffed animals, clothes and shoes. We were pleased to have ‘The Tribute to John’ family join us again to hand out noodle boxes full of selections of home-made sweets. Felicity Park was full of ambience with trees lit up with fairy lights and our own Chrissy decorations.
Meanwhile on the Gold Coast, we are blessed to welcome Tony from Goodfellaz Barbershop at Benowa Village for joining us on outreach in Surfers Paradise. Tony kindly offers your talent to those less fortunate. He grooms our friends on the street. He spoke to them all with such respect introducing himself and asking the patron their names. We all watched transformations before our eyes, like Geoff. Geoff just glowed afterwards.Tony will generously provide this service on the last Friday of each month. Thank you Tony!
Last but not least, Rosies Wynnum Maly received some presents from Bunnings Manly West. The local store offered us more storage boxes and a huge esky to the Rosies branch. Boxes will help us organise our stock, while we will use the esky for our monthly BBQ at St Peter’s Church for our friends on the street.This morning we had a visit from the local Commonwealth Bank Manly West at our outreach in Wynnum. The branch made a donation to support our local outreach.
Christmas is still in the air…
