Hundreds of Colorado Park residents have enjoyed an annual Christmas party.

Georgina Mouwers, affectionately known as Aunty Gina, and a group of volunteers made sure the Colorado Park soup kitchen she runs held its annual party last Tuesday at the Colorado Park community hall.

Aunty Gina is this year’s People’s Post Specsavers Community Champions Elders award winner in the 70 to 80 years category.

The party was held for about 150 people from the community.

Donations and help were also received from the consul of Japan, who also attended the event.
