Christmas can be a lonely time for people who live on their own or older couples whose families are not around at this festive time.
Catering students at East Durham College wanted to make a difference to older people in their area and so they are opening the doors of their college restaurant ‘Scene 1’ on Thursday 7 December at 12.00 noon to host a stylish Christmas Lunch, exclusive for people over 50 who live on their own or will not be enjoying a social Christmas.
This intergenerational activity gives older people in the area the opportunity to mix with young people who are learning important skills. The students enjoy cooking once a month for our Come Eat Together members and enjoy making extra effort to give them a lovely meal.
It’s also the perfect opportunity for those who live alone or need a break from caring to enjoy good food in good company at Christmas time.
Diners will receive a warm welcome and a 2 course Traditional Christmas Fayre, followed by tea or coffee and Christmas games.
