Suncorp Stadium Strengthens the Community on Christmas

Suncorp Stadium Strengthens the Community on Christmas


Thursday December 23 - 3:00pm

200 guests, 50 volunteers, 15 carol singers, a gourmet meal, and a host of generous donors are the ingredients for Suncorp Stadium’s Annual Christmas Day lunch for the homeless & disadvantaged.

For 364 days of the year Suncorp Stadium hosts international sports and music stars from around the country and the world with the 365th day saved for welcoming those less fortunate in the community into the venue for Christmas.

Volunteers from Suncorp Stadium will join Communify and venue caterers The O’Brien Group Australia to put on a day of Christmas celebrations.

Suncorp Stadium General Manager Alan Graham said the annual lunch is another pillar of the venue’s corporate social responsibility.

“Suncorp Stadium is an icon of the Queensland landscape and as such it is our duty to play an active role in supporting and enhancing the local community” he said.

“We are so grateful to the many sponsors who have provided support.”

This year, guests will take away Christmas hampers containing life’s necessities like toiletry packs, food, blankets, clothing and other essential goods.

The lack of international travel due to Covid has proved a blessing in disguise for our lunch attendees this year.

Many will seem like they are travelling business class as Virgin Australia have kindly donated blankets, pillows, toiletry kits and sleep suits which haven’t been used due to the downturn in travel.
