A delicious feast of food and drink was served up to senior citizens in Honiton.

Honiton Community College in conjunction with Honiton Senior Citizens Centre hosted a special Christmas dinner for 122 guests last Wednesday.

The festivities were kicked off with a sherry and mince pie reception followed by a three course Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and a mouth watering dessert.

Students and staff at the college and a merry band of volunteers including members of Honiton and District Lions Club and Honiton Community Church helped serve the meal to all the guests.

Entertainment was provided by the college’s choir, who sang a selection of traditional carols, and there was also a performance by students from the school’s production of Shakespeare’s All’s Well that Ends Well.

The college’s finance director Gary Wills, who helped organise the event following its success last year, said: “There were a huge number of people that were involved in the event and they all have my heartfelt thanks for putting so much time and effort to make 122 people so happy at this time of year.”

He added: “It was a great afternoon and we have brightened up the lives of many local OAPs.”

All the guests were given a goody bag of presents, which were made by students.

A raffle in aid of Devon Air Ambulance Trust and the Royal British Legion was held on the day and raised more than £120. There was also a collection which will be added to the raffle total.
