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. 

Please take note of the key dates detailed below as well as the eligibility criteria that can be found here.
