More than 150 community members celebrated Bellarine Community Health’s ‘Spirit of Christmas’ event at Parks Hall in Portarlington.
The annual daytime Carols by Candlelight and luncheon has become a highlight of the festive season for many elderly residents on the Bellarine.
“We love organising this event each year,” said Community Wellness Program Coordinator, Sally Bambrook.
“Because a lot of our clients are very elderly or have issues that make it difficult for them to get out at night, having a singalong and lunch during the day is perfect,” she said.
Parks Hall was decked out with decorations and a giant Christmas tree, and Bellarine Community Health staff dressed as Christmas elves.
The Drysdale Community Choir created a wonderful atmosphere for guests, and Parks Hall was lit by a sea of waving candles.
“Our clients and other community members tell us how much they enjoy catching up with old friends and they love the singing and carols,” Ms Bambrook said.
