The Porterbrook care home manager Sheilagh Sweeney said guests can expect a traditional Christmas dinner, including a vegetarian option, with all the trimmings and a glass of bubbly. This will be followed by Christmas pudding and tea or coffee.

Mrs Sweeney said: “It can be a very lonely time for lots of people at this time of year and some may end up spending Christmas Day alone.

“Here at The Porterbrook, we wanted to do something for the community in the lead up to Christmas which would give elderly pensioners, who have no family around them, some companionship and festive cheer. It also gives them the chance to see what life at The Porterbrook is like.

“We hope that people come, enjoy a delicious Christmas dinner, make new friends and enjoy the festivities. We want to make it a memorable day with a party atmosphere.”
