For the second year running, Waitrose has launched a fund to help support elderly, homeless and vulnerable people at Christmas.

The company is looking to support Christmas lunch events for people who would otherwise be on their own on Christmas Day. Waitrose is asking organisers of Christmas lunch events to get in touch with their local shop where they can apply for funding. Application forms can be found at the welcome desk at Waitrose in Bury St Edmunds or by speaking to Jane Gunsman (left) or Karen Clarke (right). The deadline for requests is October 31
