The 60 people who went along enjoyed a three-course meal cooked by the volunteers and received a Christmas gift and deliveries were made to a further 15.

The Revd Matthew Price said: “We are so grateful for the volunteers making it all happen and answering Christ’s call to be with the lonely and isolated. No one should be on their own on Christmas Day. We believe that giving is at the heart of the Christmas message. 

“One guy is homeless, living in a tent on the beach, and said when he walked into the room it was ‘full of joy’. Everyone seemed really happy.”
