St George's Anglican Church Christmas Shopping Extravaganza
St George's Anglican Church invites the Hurstville community to join in its Christmas Shopping Extravaganza on Saturday, December 9.
The event will offer bargains for holiday shopping combined with a community celebration with the Hurstville Community Garden and the Lion's Club, sponsored by Georges River Council.
A highlight of the day will be St George' s Anglican Church's second-hand market, where the community can discover bargains for their Christmas shopping ranging from books and toys to technology, clothing, collectables and sporting goods, at affordable prices.
In collaboration with Anglicare, the event introduces a mobile Community Pantry allowing individuals to fill a shopping bag with essential items for $12.
The initiative, addressing the challenges faced by many in the community, aims to make a positive impact during the holiday season.
Funds raised during the event will contribute to installing a multi-function sports court at Hurstville Public School, and to support Anglicare's ongoing efforts through their Community Pantry program.
Hurstville Community Garden and the Lion's Club are joining in the festivities.
The Hurstville Community Garden will showcase its commitment to sustainable living, offering insights into gardening practices and environmental stewardship.
Sponsor of the day, Georges River Council supports the event's vision of fostering community engagement and celebration.
Senior minister at St George's Anglican Church, Rev Dr. Brian Tung invited all the community to attend.
"Our Christmas Shopping Extravaganza is not just about shopping, it's a real community event where neighbours come together to celebrate, support each other, and make a positive impact," he said.
"We are grateful for the support of Georges River Council, Hurstville Community Garden, and the Lion's Club in making this day special."
