RRT Melbourne provides Pre-Christmas BBQ lunch to homeless

The Ozanam Community Centre, is a drop-in support centre and does outstanding work as a shelter for homeless and vulnerable people in the area.

For the second time this year, the Rapid Relief Team assisted the Ozanam Community Centre by providing the Pre-Christmas BBQ lunch to approximately 170 users of the centre on Friday 19th December 2014. The delicious lunch consisted of Hamburgers with all the fillings, fresh hot chips and soft drinks, and was followed by Marshmallow Santas for desert!

    1. Gaz says:

      It’s a very common technique used by musos, it enables you to hear your own voice more clearly in a loud environment!

    2. ooooo says:

    3. oooooo says:

      Well… the are actually from both! Max (drums) is from Boronia and the rest are from Lilydale

    4. answer to your question says:

      the majority of the band members were from Lilydale, with the remaining from Boronia.
      this is subject to correction, though! 🙂

    Well done RRT Melbourne. You’ve not only provided sustenance – you have provided cheer and entertainment with kind and friendly faces. Now; if you could send some warm weather over to the eastern half of North America we could call it extended relief! I look at the photos of everyone in t-shirts and then look outside before deciding nah – too cold!

  20. Sil says:

    Well done…. you have again provided for the needy…The food was superb, and the music entertaining… Keep up the good work…
