Archant

A total of 30 guests plus a willing band of volunteers ensured Christmas was celebrated with a special lunch at the United Reformed Church in Stowmarket.

The event, which was organised by Michelle Frost and her Asda colleague Jill Roberts, was created for people who may have been alone over the Christmas period.

The lunch was attended by the town’s mayor, Gerard Brewster, and his wife, Audrey, along with the minister at the church, Reverend Chris Wood.

Some of the guests were even picked up and driven from their homes for the event.

Businesses including, Hughes, the Regal Theatre and The Oak, donated prizes for a bingo and raffle.
