PEPPER POT CENTRE CHRISTMAS PARTY 2022
Early festive cheer was brought to the members of the Pepper Pot Centre, their friends and guests on Wednesday 7 December at their first Christmas party since 2019.
At the party, a hosted by Centre staff a record ninety-two people sat for a three-course lunch( turkey, rum punch, ginger beer, sorrel and more) and the Ebony Steel Band provided some wonderful music. The Pepper Pot staff and volunteers, ten of whom came from the Global Radio Station including Capital Xtra team – breakfast presenters Robert Bruce and Shayna-Marie and eight staff and students from Morley College served the food, made sure everyone had an enjoyable time and plenty to eat.
During the afternoon five Pepper Pot members over the age of 90 received gifts including Horace Brafitt who is 100. In addition the raffle supported by donations from our visiting Ambassadors etc raised a record £260.00 in less than two hours. For the second year our Christmas event was fully sponsored by THE JULIA AND HANS RAUSING TRUST
As one visitor said “This afternoon was a special time for all those who attended and it was very rewarding to see so many elderly people looking so happy”
We would like to thank all our guests for joining us to celebrate the season’s festivities, including the Mayor, Cllr David Lindsay and the Mayoress, Catherine Lindsay and the High Commissioner of Guyana, Dr Rajendra Singh who made an enthusiastic speech about current developments in oil rich Guyana.
