Christmas Lunch in the Park is supported by a team of over 250 passionate volunteers who generously donate their time, energy and expertise in the lead up to and on Christmas Day, making the event possible.

The event attracts a large number of people wishing to volunteer and, while we would love to be able to include everyone, to ensure we deliver a safe event and provide volunteers with meaningful roles, we have limited places available.
