Free Christmas dinner... and no washing up!

Free Christmas dinner... and no washing up!

MORE than 60 members of Henley’s 60-Plus Club will enjoy a free Christmas lunch thanks to a donation of £2,000 by funeral directors Tomalin & Son.

The money will also pay for a new dishwasher at the centre in Greys Road car park. Gill Dodds, who chairs the management committee, said: “It’s lovely and a very, very generous donation. We have been running a deficit budget but people such as Tomalins have been very generous, so we’re hoping our finances will look healthier coming into the next financial year.”

Bruce Jones, who runs the Reading Road funeral directors, said: “We love supporting the local community and this is a very worthwhile cause.

“Christmas is a happy time for families but it can be quite sad if you’re on your own. This means everyone can come and enjoy Christmas dinner.”

The meal will be served on December 18.
