Christmas Day 2018 saw 100 local residents coming together for a free Christmas lunch in Swaffham Assembly Rooms. The annual event, coordinated by local charity Iceni Partnership is now in its fifth year and has gone from strength to strength thanks to the continued support of local businesses and individuals donating their time and produce.
This year the event received a substantial donation from Swaffham Waitrose as part of their ‘community matters’ scheme, which was very gratefully received. This combined with the donations of independent retailers in the town made for a wonderful day.
As well as receiving a full meal with all the trimmings, guests were also treated to a raffle; festive bingo and a Christmas carol sing a long. Yet again the feedback received from guests was extremely positive and everyone attending left with a full belly and a smile on their face. Well done Swaffham!
