The Mandurah Coastal Times wants the businesses community to help its Community Christmas by taking part in a charity campaign, with part proceeds going to the unfunded group.

The soup kitchen offers hot meals five days a week, a safe place for a chat and a cuppa, and even pastoral care from its base in the old church hall in Gibson Street.

It currently caters for about 80 people a day, with help from a number of sponsors and volunteers, including Hog’s Breath Restaurant, which cooks lunch three days a week for free as the hall has no cooking facilities, and John Tonkin College Tafe students, who once a week donate the meals cooked in their training sessions.

The Mandurah Coastal Times will run a special campaign featuring the soup kitchen, giving businesses the chance to take part in the unique community-based project, and promote their Christmas bargains and sales.

In coming weeks, we will feature stories on the kitchen and the businesses that have signed up to the campaign.

To be involved, call Mandurah Coastal Times sales manager Cindy Watts on 9583 1041 or 0413 444 017.
