Staff at Glasswells have volunteered to furnish Christmas dinner to elderly people who would otherwise spend the day alone.

The dinner will be held at the Bury St Edmunds’ furniture store’s Place to East restaurant. It is working with groups such as Community Christmas and Age UK Suffolk .

Robert Hawkins, a Glasswells director, said: “This is a totally voluntary initiative on the part of the staff. They have raised funds through raffles, a quiz and by seeking donations.

“Our suppliers have also been remarkably generous and, as a result we have received, we will be able to provide a full Christmas Dinner for up to 80 guests.”

They need some volunteers to take guests home at 3.30pm. If you can help, or want to apply for a dinner place, call Heidi Andrade on 01284 752804.
