Youth from Saint Nectarios Burwood raise funds to give Christmas hampers to refugees


The Youth in Action group of Saint Nectarios Greek Orthodox Parish and Community in Burwood, Sydney, held a successful Mamma Mia-themed trivia night fundraiser on Saturday, October 7 at the church hall of All Saints Belmore.

The event was held to raise much-needed funds for Youth in Action’s Christmas hampers which they donate to refugees families through Metro Assist every year.

On the night, a total of $3,282 was raised for the hampers.

Throughout the family-friendly event, there was plenty of singing, dancing, fun challenges and prizes given out for the best Mamma Mia and Greek island inspired outfits.

On Facebook, St Nectarios Burwood thanked all prize donors, the youth who ran the event, and all the people who helped out with cooking and cleaning on the day to make it a success.

“We couldn’t have done it without you and your support is greatly appreciated,” the post said. “Thank you to everyone who came along – and to those who missed it, there’s always next year.”
