Christmas Feast

As you sit down to your Christmas Feast spare a thought for those who won’t.

Do you have an elderly person living near you who you think won’t have a Christmas Dinner with all the trimmings ? If so you are probably going to have more food than you need, why don’t you plate a meal up for them and take it to them? I cook a Christmas meal for any of  my elderly people who would otherwise have a ready meal, sat at home alone.


I never give them a cracker though, it would just re-iterate how lonely old age can be. I pull one with them when  I am with them.

How can you make a difference to someone elderly in 2015 ?

With half a million older people spending this Christmas alone, there’s still time to ‪#‎beafriend‬ and help us end loneliness at Christmas and all year round. It might be something as simple as wishing an older person you meet a Merry Christmas or inviting an older neighbour round for a mince pie.
