Once again, Hammersmith & Fulham Council is supporting local isolated older people by holding their largest ever Big Christmas Day Lunch for up to 250 local residents who would otherwise be on their own. Guests will enjoy a festive meal & live entertainment in good company at Novotel Hammersmith. Residents, the Mayor, councillors & council staff will all be volunteering their time and pulling together to give the guests a memorable day. The Big Christmas Day Lunch helps to combat loneliness during the festive season; it brings the community together to share a delightful day; and the opportunity to meet new people. It also makes guests aware of services that might help them throughout the year, such as befriending, home care, meals on wheels and lunch clubs. And it helps our social services team to identify and offer support to vulnerable residents they may not already be aware of.
Funding for the event is being raised through SpaceHive – please forward this information on to your contacts who might be interested in supporting this brilliant local event.
