Our Lady of Lourdes Church Hall in Huddersfield, where we hold our community lunch groups for older people, was buzzing on 17th and 18th May for the lunch groups! There was an air of excitement about the Royal Wedding on 19th May.
Two of our volunteers were so excited they decided they wanted to look like the happy couple and dressed up as Harry & Meghan to greet everyone as they came in!
The children from Our Lady of Lourdes Primary School came and helped to serve sandwiches, wash/dry up. They were a great help! They were rewarded with a couple of games of stand up sit down bingo which they thoroughly enjoyed. Our participants were treated to violin music by Siobhan Vink whilst having afternoon tea! We toasted the Royal couple with a glass of sherry, finished off with a game of bingo and nobody wanted to leave!!
A big thank you must go out to all our volunteers who helped at either sessions, we couldn’t do it without you!!!
