An early Christmas lunch was served up to old folk from care homes by Hemel Hempstead firm Home Counties Cladding.

The festive occassion was organised after managing director Kevin McSweeney decided he wanted to do something to give back to the older generation.

Residents from Queensway House, Old House Road and Evelyn Sharpe House in Hemel Hempstead were treated to lunch with all the trimmings and a wrapped Christmas gift on Tuesday, December 1 at the Holiday Inn in Breakspeare Way.

Entertainment was provided by singer Colin Wells, who got guests clapping their hands and tapping their feet along to songs from the 50s and 60s along with some modern tunes.

Transport was provided by Dacorum Community Trust at a reduced rate and taxi driver Martin Hanlan gave his time for free to pick up and dropped off a lady who uses an electric wheelchair and was unable to get onto the bus.

Mr McSweeney said: “It is a fantastic feeling to give something to people and see the joy on their faces, I have been told that many of the residents cant stop talking about what a great time they had.

“We look forward to making this an annual event with the help and support of the local businesses who made their services available for this Christmas Lunch.”
