2023 Canterbury Christmas Movie & Carols Karaoke Night Fundraiser | Event Wrap, Photos & Video

Yesterday evening, our incoming 2024 Student Leadership Team hosted our annual Canterbury Christmas Movie & Carols Karaoke Night Fundraiser in the CEC.

Despite the poor weather (again – remember last year?!) our amazing families still came together in the true spirit of giving and Christmas – making our ‘feel-good’ event a success! ✨

Home Alone was the movie of the night and guests enjoyed BBQ dinner, popcorn, lolly bags and soft drinks.

The Christmas Karaoke Carols on stage were fun, but nobody is quitting their day job just yet to pursue a singing career.

We directly supported two charities that we have worked closely with throughout the years:

Orange Sky Australia provides a positive and supportive environment for people who are too often ignored or feel disconnected from their community.

They provide regular laundry and shower services for homeless people.

Our College community has strongly supported this organisation throughout 2023, and the funds raised at the event – via the gold coin entry donations, and food and drink sales, will further support this worthy cause.

Rosies: Friends On The Street is an organisation which aims to offer friendship and unconditional acceptance to those who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, or are experiencing social isolation.

So each College House brought different items to donate to the Rosies Appeal.

These were placed under the relevant Christmas Tree inside the Canterbury Events Centre.

Thank you to everyone who participated, donated, and shared in the festive joy. 

Together, we’ve made a difference and brightened the lives of those who need it most. ❤️
