The Hope Trust seeks to offer older people a place where they can come out from their own four walls into a place of community and social inclusion. Those who join them enjoy company but they really love it if someone can offer them a home cooked meal, especially if they usually rely on ready meals.
Hope Trust invited people to join them for a post-Christmas lunch on 27th December. Those invited were known to the group as people who, for whatever reason, were not going to be with family at Christmas. Having an invite to lunch on Sunday 27th December was a social lifeline to more than one person who joined them.
