Swaffham cafe to serve over 40 people on Christmas Day


By Lynn News Reporter


Christmas Day will be no time for rest for members of staff at a Swaffham cafe, which will be handing out free lunches to those in need.

The Tea Pot cafe, located on Plowright Place in the town, will be opening up at 12.30pm to provide Christmas lunches to 41 people.

Cafe owner Sandra Berryman said the cafe will be fully booked for Christmas Day with a choice menu on offer for those who will be going.

A three-course sit-down meal will be dished up, providing festive joy to those who may be lonely or struggling around Christmas time.

All the food has been donated by suppliers such as Bidfood, Roger Holme Foods, Norfolk Produce and Necton Butchers.

The Christmas Day lunches have been served up since 2016, when the idea was first formulated by Mrs Berryman after the cafe was being offered food and donations to distribute.

Mrs Berryman said: “People do not necessarily have to be on the street to receive a Christmas lunch, but they just have to be within the community.

“We have had donations from the public so that has been great.”

Her sister Sharon Lyon will help Mrs Berryman on Christmas Day to serve out the meals.

Mrs Berryman has been owner of The Tea Pot since February 2016.

The cafe has a wide selection of teas and freshly ground coffee, as well as a variety of food.
