Elderly Christmas Lunch 01

As a proportion of total residents, Haddenham has one of the largest group of seniors in Buckinghamshire — and a significant number of these people live alone.

Even under normal circumstances it is easy for such elderly folk to feel a little isolated and lacking social interaction. This can feel even more significant at Christmas time.

Do you have an elderly friend or relative living in Haddenham or one of the close villages? If so, please draw their attention to two local events that will offer them both a delicious Christmas lunch as well as lots of friendly company.

HADAC
Haddenham & District Age Concern (HADAC) is organising another wonderful Christmas lunch at Bradmoor Farm on Friday 13th December to which local seniors will be made very welcome.

There's is a modest charge of just £5

To book, email: stuart_monro2002@yahoo.co.uk

Transport can be arranged via the Fish Scheme (email: jeannewatt@btinternet.com) or the Haddenham Community Vehicle.

Community Christmas Thame
Community Christmas Thame aims to provide a Christmas lunch on Christmas Day for the isolated and vulnerable elderly in Thame and local villages, including Haddenham. This charitable activity is supported by Sainsbury, Waitrose and Thame Welfare Trust.

If you know elderly folk who would like to enjoy this free luncheon, please help them make contact with the organisers on (01844 217413)

Visit the website for more information, including the opportunity to become a volunteer this Christmas.
