Over 140 of our senior citizens joined in the Christmas Celebrations with the ‘Pensioners Party’ at St Cuthbert’s Church Hall. This event originally started by Roger Black, was simply too good to lose when he retired in 2013. Billingham Legacy Foundation asked Jan McDermott (Tastebuds in Billingham) if she and her team would be prepared to work their wonders again to deliver a superb 3 course Christmas Meal, with all the trimmings to our seniors. Mark Hodgson provided the entertainment with a range of 50’s, 60’s and 70’s music – well the pictures tell the story! A truly superb evening and for some of our seniors – the only evening of the year they venture out.
BLF Supporters wish to thank all the volunteers that helped make the evening so special including Jan and her team, Leanne Norman and the McDonald’s team, Shani Corcoran and the Falck Safety Services team and Lesley Harrison from TSB and the volunteers at St Cuthbert’s Church Hall. BLF Supporters are also grateful for the financial help, or support with products GrowHow, Warburtons, KP Snacks, Lucite, TSB Bank and of course you, our residents, who by attending our other Legacy Foundation events during the year help us commit to this wonderful festive celebration.
