Guests enjoyed a Christmas treat at the annual Warm Hearts lunch at Scarborough’s Royal Hotel.
The event is organised by The Scarborough News and Age UK and provides 30 people with a Christmas dinner plus hampers to take home.
The event was supported by The Royal Hotel which is part of Britannia Hotels, McCain, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Boyes, Tesco, Jasmine Florist and Buriston Nurseries.
Eastfield House Day Care provided a lunch voucher for a guest and a friend and taxis to and from the event were laid on by Nippy Taxis.
Michelle Wakefield of The Scarborough News, who helped organise the event, said: “It was a lovely afternoon and everyone really enjoyed it.
“People got to make new friends and share stories with each other.”
The Warm Hearts lunch is now into its fifth year and has become a regular fixture on the Christmas calendar.
Guests are selected by Age UK.
