No-one should spend Christmas Day alone, writes Fran Graham.
On Christmas Day at Bramley Lawn, in conjunction with Bramley Elderly Action and local councillors, we are providing a three-course Christmas lunch for local, socially isolated older people and their carers.
If you or anyone you know would benefit from this event, please get in touch with Bramley Elderly Action on 0113 2361644. We will be back in touch to discuss dietary requirements and transport if required.
The event will start at 12.30pm with a sherry reception, followed by a traditional Christmas dinner. Tea, coffee and soft drinks will be provided, if you wish to drink alcohol please bring your own limited quantity.
Entertainment, a raffle, bingo, the Queens Speech and a very special guest will also be provided.
Volunteers have come forward to run a minibus transport service to and from the event for those who cannot make their own way there.
This will be a wonderful celebration of Christmas, completely run by volunteers who are giving up their Christmas Day, please come and spend it with friends and people yet to become friends from all over Bramley.
If any generous Bramley folk and businesses feel like making a small donation to this event to help it run on a free of charge / pay as you feel / can afford basis or have any spare items to use as raffle prizes, please drop them in at BEA reception at the community centre. Anything given will be greatly appreciated.
Best wishes for a joyful Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Places are now **VERY LIMITED**, please get in touch as soon as possible.
