Over 75's Christmas Lunch

Published: 20 December 2022

On Saturday the Rotary Club of Princes Risborough, well supported by a committee of others from the town’s community, held the eleventh annual Christmas Lunch for individuals aged over 75, living alone in the town. The Club has been closely involved with this and other similar events since they began in 2012, entirely taking over the lunch from the previous town committee in 2019.

Princes Risborough Town Council were delighted to grant the Rotary Club of Princes Risborough £250 toward the annual Christmas Lunch. 

Rotary Club Members provided transport to and from the lunch for a majority of our 63 guests, the oldest of which is a robust 101; they were entertained with pre drinks of a warm fruit punch, followed by a full roast turkey meal with all the trimmings and Christmas pudding or trifle provided by Ashlea Catering who have provided the lunch to an extremely high standard and virtually at cost since the Club started. Guests were able to enjoy some wine with the meal, entertainment by the Princes Risborough Ukulele Band, and took away a pack of cookies each to enjoy over Christmas. 

The Club were supported at the Princes Centre venue by Town Mayor and Chairman, Cllr Andy Ball, Buckinghamshire Councillor Matt Walsh, and the Rector of St Marys Parish Church, Rev David Willams.
