CEO Michael Ryan explains: "Christmas can be a lonely time for certain members of our community, particularly the elderly and disadvantaged. Our mission throughout the year at St Luke's is to alleviate loneliness and social isolation, so Christmas is an important time to really bring everyone together in our community centre."
