Storrington & Pulborough District Rotary Club helps some of Storrington’s senior citizens get into the Christmas spirit at their December Pop-In Lunch.
The Christmas Pop-In Lunch is the December event of the Storrington Pop-In Lunch Club which meets monthly throughout the year. The Club meets on the 1st Thursday each month in Storrington Village Hall. Members are primarily elderly members of the local community.
Some 40 guests attended the lunch this year enjoying a glass of wine and traditional Christmas lunch. Special guests were well known local folk singers Anne Sartain and Alan Wheeler who entertained the diners and led them in singing Christmas carols.
Storrington & Pulborough District Rotary Club has sponsored and run this free community Christmas event for many years. A dedicated team of Rotary Wives provides the lunch and other Rotarians help prepare the hall, serve the food, wash up and tidy up afterwards.
Rotarian organiser Norman Boyland said: “We were delighted to once again host this special occasion and give some of the more elderly residents of Storrington an excellent meal, a couple of hours of fellowship and some happy memories”
This year the Pop-In Lunch welcomed support from the Waitrose Community Matters grant initiative which provides help for vulnerable members of the community.
