THE Salvation Army in Lowestoft is anxious that no one should spend Christmas Day on their own unless it is their preference. They will be happy to provide hospitality and Christmas fare at their premises in Battery Green Road.

Volunteers will prepare the food on Christmas Eve and will be ready to serve their guests on Christmas Day.

Earlier this week Major Barry Willson, who is the organiser of "Christmas Alone", told the Lowestoft Journal: “Whilst we prefer people to book their place in advance it is our policy not to turn anyone away. No one needs to be on their own on this special day, and our volunteers will gladly serve all who come.

“Regrettably we cannot offer transport in the morning, but we guarantee that guests who arrive will have access to transport home at the end of the day.

“People wishing to attend the morning family service of carols should arrive before 10 am - otherwise should delay their arrival until at least 11 am. The main meal will be served from 12.30 onwards and the building will remain open until around 4.30 pm.”

For further information ring Barry or Cindy Willson on 01502 539118. Line will be open throughout Christmas Eve and on Christmas Day from 11 am onwards.
