SENIOR citizens from in and around Portishead donned their glad rags for an annual supper organised by volunteers.
More than 100 nominated diners attended the event which was the result of a year’s hard work and planning by a team of helpers from the community, church volunteers and police, led by co-ordinator Cristina Hughes.
The action-packed night included a three-course meal, speeches and light entertainment.
The event is one of the highlights on the calendar for some of the elderly people who live alone and can become quite isolated.
Guest Linda Last said: “It’s nice to come out and see so many friendly faces. We’re very grateful to everyone who helped give us such a lovely evening and it’s especially wonderful to have young people here helping out.”
