The Halewood AME team and contractor Santia recently hosted a cracking Christmas party for local pensioners
Around 50 pensioners from Fairfield Residents Association attended the party at Merseyside Police Sports & Social Association in Aigburth. As well as a delicious three course dinner with all the trimmings, the partygoers also had live entertainment, bingo and a Christmas raffle.
Bill Morris from AME said: “We’ve been running this event for three years now and it’s so rewarding. Older people are often isolated and we wanted to host a fun community event where they can enjoy good food, entertainment and company. We worked hard serving the dinner with all the trimmings and everyone has had a great time.”
Jimmy Flynn, Secretary, commented: “Lots of people attend our occasional social events which are a good way for us to get together and keep active. There’s a great atmosphere here and everyone’s smiling which is great to see.”
Resident Vi Flynn said: “A lot of the people here today have nobody at home and it can be so lonely. You’ve given them the chance to get out and socialise. We’ve all had a brilliant time. Thanks to everyone at Jaguar Land Rover for making this possible, you’re amazing!”
