What happens on the day!
After arriving you are greeted and given a briefing by the St Marys House of Welcome team.
Immediately, we were given instructions and then commenced food preparation, preparing the salads, meat, bread and finally setting up tables.
The time flew by, no sooner than we finished preparation, it was time to start cooking and then the guests arrived!
In a very short time, the team on the barbecue had served over 130 guests!
But in the background, we were also washing dishes and putting things away.
What impressed us all was the brilliant organisation – everything ran to a tight schedule, like clockwork!
This was an amazing experience and makes one realise how fortunate most of us are in the lives we lead.
The team and volunteers at St Marys House of Welcome do a wonderful job supporting the less well-off in our community.
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and encourage others in the community to get involved.
