PEPPER POT CENTRE CHRISTMAS PARTY
Early festive cheer was brought to a group of members of the Pepper Pot Centre, their friends and guests on Thursday 5 December at their annual Christmas party.
The Pepper Pot Centre staff hosted the party and Lenny Ranks, Super Classic A1 and the Ebony Steel Band provided some wonderful music. The Pepper Pot staff and volunteers, eight of whom came from the High Street Kensington HSBC branch served the food, made sure everyone had a good time and plenty to eat.
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”
During the afternoon seven Pepper Pot members over the age of 90 received presents and one lady, May Butler who is 99. In addition the raffle supported by donations from our visiting Ambassadors raised a record £205.00 in less than two hours.
We would like to thank all our guests for joining us to celebrate the season’s festivities, this include the Mayor, Cllr Will Pascall and the Mayoress, Cllr Sarah Addenbrooke,Emma Dent Cord MP, Prof Ian Hall (Patron).
