Serving a treat for pensioners

Have your say

THIRTY elderly people enjoyed Christmas cheer when staff from Woodthorpe Development Trust laid on a festive treat.

The workers volunteered to serve the meal for pensioners in the area, which was held at the Woodthorpe TARA building.

“We served meals for 30 residents but we actually fed 41 people including the volunteers,” said Rysz Szumski, of the trust.

Larry Angel, trust chairman, added: “It’s so important to put on this type of event in these times of austerity.”
