Volunteers make Christmas community meal possible
Thanks to the work of a dedicated team of volunteers more than 80 people joined together as one enormous family for a Christmas meal in Ottery.
The second community Christmas Day lunch, organised by Brian and Wendy Cammack, served up a full turkey dinner in the Institute to guests from as young as 11 months to 93 years old.
The day is made possible by volunteers from St Mary’s Parish Church and friends from Ottery, who all contributed with gifts, food and drink, and hard work.
The guests were also treated to live music and a visit from father Christmas, and all went home with a goody bag which included chocolates and flowers.
Brian and Wendy said: “The Christmas Day team worked hard to make the day special for all those who came, and the tables were dressed beautifully.
