Local chippie Cromars and the Saint Andrews Episcopal Church are providing support for the homeless and struggling families by opening their doors to provide a free Christmas lunch for those most in need.
Cromars announced on Facebook and in their premises that they will be providing a Christmas Day Lunch on Tuesday 25th December between 12 noon until 2pm for those who are homeless or those who are alone at Christmas.
A spokesperson from Cromars said:
“Cromars would like to give back to the community and invite the less fortunate for a hot meal and soft drink in our seating area.”
A facebook conversation led the business to make a special appeal to Tescos seeking Christmas crackers, napkins and table decorations to make the day more special for guests.
Jillian Anderson from Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Queens Gardens posted on facebook that the Church is “also providing a free Christmas Lunch on 24th December for anyone who is homeless, on their own, or struggling to feed a family. All welcome”.
Again an offer from Tescos to contribute was taken up.
