Volunteers sought to take over annual event in 2017

Organisers of Sidmouth’s annual Christmas Day lunch are extending the hand of friendship to anyone facing the festive period alone.

Angie and Mick Carney are once again hosting the free community feast on Sunday - but are seeking volunteers to take on the event for next year

There will be a full Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, followed by music and entertainment. Angie said: “We know Christmas can be a very difficult time and sharing the day like this can be a huge help for anyone who is struggling.”

If people know someone who may like to attend, or would like to volunteer, they can call Angie and Mick on 01395 514350.
