The Lighthouse Centre and Ely Cathedral have been so amazed by the generosity of local people and organisations that are supporting us to provide a Christmas Day meal to those alone or in need this Christmas.
We have had dozens of volunteers already come forward to help deliver and prepare food. The following local organisations are working with us to make this happen: Crucial Cuisine, Descensus Masonic Lodge, LuvEly, Prospects Trust Unwrapped, The Rotary Club and Waitrose.
Many local people have donated time and money to this – We are truly blown away this year. It’s been difficult for so many, yet the generosity of the people of Ely and the surrounding villages is astounding.
With more people on their own this Christmas than ever before it seems this year it is even more crucial that we are able to offer this to our community.
This week Prime Minister Boris Johnson added that “If you have an elderly relative, you might want to delay seeing them until they’ve been vaccinated.” The full vaccine course is weeks away and we understand that people want to stay safe.
So, with both these things in mind and thanks to the generosity of Ely we are now offering our Christmas Day meal free of charge.
To book a meal for yourself or someone else you can contact The Lighthouse Centre by phone on 01353662228 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org Last chance to book is Wednesday 23rd December.
