The H&F Big Christmas Day Lunch – be our guest or help make it happen

Residents aged 60 and over who aren’t having lunch with anyone on Christmas Day are invited to join the festive cheer and meet new people at the H&F Big Christmas day lunch 2019. 

We are excited to be holding this year's event at Novotel London West who are looking forward to welcoming everyone on the day. Please get your applications in as soon as possible to avoid disappointment!

H&F Council throws a Christmas Day lunch party for residents every year, and this year we are expecting up to 250 guests.

On top of a hearty Christmas lunch, our guests will enjoy a goody bag, live entertainment, music and dancing. Door-to-door transport, qualified carers and a team of volunteers will ensure all guests are well looked after.

Some residents from local veterans’ housing charity, Stoll, attended last year’s Christmas lunch and are looking forward to returning.

“We would just like to thank all the wonderful people who came and collected our residents at Stoll Mansions at Fulham. They had the most amazing day and cannot wait for next year, thank you once again,” said Tara Farrell, Stoll Independent Living Support Worker.

The event on 25 December 2019 is from 11am-3pm (doors open 10am) and free door to door transport can be provided.
