Christmas meal for Rushden pensioners

Pensioners in Rushden can enjoy a Christmas meal thanks to the Royal Mail.

Rushden Pensioners’ Forum is arranging a Christmas lunch for members to celebrate the festive season.

The event has been made possible thanks to funding provided by Royal Mail, which has donated £50,000 to Age UK to fund social activities for older people across the UK.

Thanks to the funding, Rushden Pensioners’ Forum members will be sitting down to turkey with all the trimmings and Christmas pudding at the John White Golf Club Function Room, Bedford Road, Rushden,from midday on Wednesday, December 17.

Royal Mail Group’s head of corporate responsibility and community investment Lily Heinemann said: “Royal Mail is really pleased to be supporting this event for older people.”

The forum meets at St Peter’s Church Hall, Midland Road, Rushden, at 2pm on the fourth Wednesday of every month. Call Harry Graham on 01933 356671.
