What a fantastic lunch was shared by around 50 people on Friday 16th Dec, including our charity’s founder and patron Shirley Simmonds and local MP Jason McCartney. Our wonderful cook Laura Smith had cooked the most deliciously moist turkey (donated by Kev Carter, from Flowery Fields Farm at Hade Edge), with proper Christmas veg (donated by Morrisons) and stuffing made by Mark Swift. We finished with a choice of trifle (made by one of our members, Ann Holmes), warmed mince pie with cream, or cheese and biscuits, then hot drinks with Christmas cake & stollen. The party finished off with some festive tunes played on the piano by Christine Lockwood and a raffle where everyone was a winner!
Here are some of the partygoers:
