Stratford care home offers free Christmas dinners

Stratford Editorial 20th Dec, 2022   0

A CARE home in Stratford is donating Christmas dinners to those who can’t afford one this year.

Christmas is an expensive time of year and with the cost-of-living crisis adding extra financial pressure, many may not have the cash to buy the essentials for a Christmas dinner.

As a result, Lower Meadow care home is providing all the ingredients to make one to 20 individuals or families.

The care home’s Christmas package includes one turkey breast joint, a bag of potatoes, broccoli, a bag of sprouts, a bag of parsnips, a bag of Yorkshire puddings, a box of stuffing, a packet of pigs in blankets and a tub of gravy granules.

Rachel Walker, Home Manager for Lower Meadow care home, said: “We understand the current struggles with the daily living costs rising astronomically and the pressures people feel at Christmas. We are hearing more and more that people will struggle to have a Christmas dinner this year due to the rising costs and our community have always been so supportive of Lower Meadow, therefore we want to give something back to those really struggling this Christmas.”

To enquire about receiving a Christmas dinner email [email protected] before December 23.
