Successful Christmas Day lunch in Aylesbury enjoyed by 120 guests
The event was organised by a team of 68 volunteers led by Aylesbury resident Kim Walter, who was overseeing proceedings for the 14th time.
Her husband Paul said of the day: "It went very well - a lot of effort went into the day and it all started after the morning service when the church gets a quick transformation to a lunch hall.
"All our guests enjoyed a three course meal - a starter of soup, a traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings and Christmas pudding.
"The meal was cooked on the day by a team of catering students from Aylesbury College who prepared the dinner in their kitchen, brought it across to the church and helped to serve it.
"We had a real cross-section of people there on the day - people who were homeless, those who would otherwise have been alone and some families.
"As well as dinner, guests enjoyed entertainment in the form of a quiz, a ukelele band and a rock choir who sung Christmas carols.
"Santa put in an appearance and handed out some presents."
The mayor Cllr Mark Willis and deputy mayor Cllr Mike Smith attended and joined in with the community event.
Mr Walter added: "The volunteers all enjoyed the day and being part of such a great community-spirited event."
Money towards the food came from funds raised by organisers during the year, enabling visitors to have the lunch without any charge to them.
