Swaffham Lions welcomed around 120 elderly guests for turkey and all the trimmings at their annual Christmas party at Nicholas Hamond Academy on Sunday afternoon.

Activities chairman Dennis Fallon said: “It’s something we really look forward to each year, the camaraderie. So many of these people are lonely and we like to spread some Christmas cheer. They’re so grateful for the whole event that it gives you a really good, warm feeling.”

The event proved a huge success with special guests including South-West Norfolk MP Elizabeth Truss and town mayor Shirley Matthews. The Phoenix Singers sang carols and Santa handed out raffle prizes. mlnf14pm12047
