Christmas dinners and hampers distributed to older people.

by Geoff Brown

Christmas dinner, cooked by Dawn Harper for older people on their own for Christmas.

Today saw the delivery of plated festive meals to older members of our community who will be on their own for Christmas.

Dawn Harper, who has been cooking hot meals for vulnerable and isolating people throughout the first lockdown and again since November, was anxious that her regular clients should not miss out at Christmas. With some local funding coming available from the family hampers appeal, Dawn and Cathy Bowness have masterminded the production and delivery of complimentary hampers to a number of people and pre-cooked Christmas dinners to others who they knew would be on their own for Christmas day. Over thirty people have benefitted. Delivered by a small team of regular volunteers, the hampers and meals were well received by all. 

Thanks are due to Dawn and Cathy for the tremendous amount of work and organisation that has gone in to this community project. The service also helps to maintain regular contact with some of the people who may normally attend the Crich Luncheon Club at the Glebe, but who have been unable to meet for most of this year.
