HOLY Trinity Anglican Church parish will celebrate their growing links with the wider community to create meaningful change in developing countries with the first of many combined charity events this weekend.
Church rector Reverend Mal Dunnett said a Christmas in July event on Sunday was being held to support members of the parish and Orange Anglican Grammar School students who plan to travel to the Solomon Islands in late September to assist with building a high school in the province of Ysabel.
The parish’s event will include an hour-long performance by the Colour City Chamber Orchestra inside the church from noon, with a Yuletide-themed luncheon to be held in the Memorial Hall to follow.
The event is supported by Rotary Australia World Community Service.
Mr Dunnett and his family have been involved in assisting the Ysabel Anglican Diocese for over 10 years. He is happy community groups are coming on board to help with the church’s outreach work.
“We work towards bettering education, community development and disaster recovery options,” Mr Dunnett said.
Tickets for the event must be secured by today and are available from the church office in Anson Street at a cost of $20 per person, $10 for school students or $50 for a family.
It’s requested that guests place gifts of school stationery or suitable sports equipment under a Christmas tree for students in the Solomons community.
