Christmas is a time for giving, and that’s a sentiment being taken to heart by the owner of a cafe on Carlton Hill.
Marie Jackson who owns Piginns Cafe has decided to open her business on Christmas Day and offer free lunches to a number of lonely people in the nearby area.
The business has said the event is limited to ’10 deserving people’ in the local area.
Four places have been taken, so the cafe are now looking for six more.
Owner Marie said: “People will be expected to join in the festivities like dressing the tree and joining in with the games. The meal and company is free.
“If you are, or know, a deserving person who will genuinely be alone this Christmas day and you, or they, would like to take advantage of this offer, please contact us.”
You can either call into the cafe Marie or telephone 0115 841 3878.
