Tigh-Na-Mara hosts by-donation Christmas lunch at Salvation Army church

Annual event serves up turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings

The Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort is hosting its annual Christmas lunch at the Salvation Army Community Church on Wednesday, Dec. 18.

All community members are welcome, and the by-donation lunch is a full course Christmas meal, complete with turkey, stuffing, dessert and all the trimmings.

“The event exists to bring community together, provide a full-course Christmas dinner to those who may not otherwise have one this year, share in the joy of the season and give the Tigh-Na-Mara team an uplifting experience volunteering for our community,” said business manager Bonnie Brown in a release.

Salvation Army staff and volunteers will be on-site to say hello, answer questions and spread Christmas cheer.

They will also be raising funds for their Christmas kettle campaign, which is aiming to raise another $50,000 by Dec. 24.

So far the kettle campaign for the Parksville Qualicum Beach area has raised just over half of the $110,000 target.

Funds raised by the community stay in the community, and go towards serving hot meals in the soup kitchen, filling the shelves of the food bank and supporting other local services.
