Big welcome to free Christmas party

DO you live alone and dread the thought of Christmas?

If so, there is someone who would like to wine, dine and entertain you, and all for free!

This year, Home Alone volunteer Gloria Stewart has extended her Christmas gift to the lonely to a Manvers venue, and she hopes to attract people to her shindig from all around the area.

On December 1, her special Christmas Dinner will take place at the Park Inn Hotel, and will include a free present for everyone.

Gloria began reaching out to those who might like to meet new friends over four years ago at Sheffield.

She said: “I became aware of people who were hiding away over Christmas because they lived alone and just wanted it all to be over.

“I started these celebrations and went from 87 participants in the first year to 298 last year.

“I want people to get in touch, whatever their age, and book their place for this year’s festivities. Thre’s no need to be alone throughout the Christmas season”.

Volunteers to help with the lunch would also be very welcome.

Contact Gloria on 01142 570460 to reserve your place, for more details or to offer help. Any donations would be much appreciated.
