Christmas Lights Supporting the Community
Santa at the Salvos

The Salvation Army at Red Hill continues its tradition of brightening its Glenrosa Road Centre with another glistening Christmas lights display in 2018 for us all to enjoy.

This year's installation features a manger and re-creation of the nativity scene at the entrance. Next door, Santa, Rudolph and his cheeky elves are busy packing toys and treats for the good children (and grown-ups) before his long gift-giving adventure on Christmas Eve.

Nativity scene

Don't forget to look up in the trees for giant Christmas bells hanging from the Australian native trees. Tinsel and scoops of twinkle lights along the fence finish the look.

In over a decade, the light's installation was the creation of volunteer Geoff Vennables, a former client of the Red Hill Recovery Centre, until his sudden passing. Fortunately, the lights have continued in his tradition and honour his legacy. The centre provides accommodation and drug and alcohol rehabilitation services.

The centre has been an entrant in the annual 4KQ Christmas Lights competition where hundreds of Brisbane residents and business owners take part in adding fairy lights and decorations to their homes for the chance to win a share of over $20,000 worth of cash and prizing.

Visitors can wander through the display each night at this free event and importantly consider those who may be less fortunate this Christmas. During the day, the Salvos store next door is open for donations and purchases of pre-loved furniture, clothes, household items and bric-a-brac which helps fund the ongoing work of the centre.

For a feel-good lights display of flickering festive fun, why not stop by the Salvation Army Centre at Glenrosa Road Red Hill, Street parking is available. Red Hill is located 3kms from the CBD.
