Christmas with Soul Banner

Thanks to our major sponsor Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group, Newcastle Limousines and the generosity of the community the Soul Christmas Luncheon will be held on Wednesday the 20th December. We are planning to cater for 300 guests with a magnificent meal, all the trimmings, presents for everyone and a visit from Santa.

Between Christmas and New Year we are planning to open the 27th and 29th December offering take away meals and hampers for our guests to get them through the holiday period when a lot of services are closed.

Look back on the 2016 'Christmas with Soul' story.
