A CLUB popular with elderly Kirkley residents received a welcome boost this week.
The Elderly People's Luncheon Club has benefited from a �500 donation from the locality budget of Suffolk County Councillor Bill Mountford.
The club, which meets twice a month on the second and fourth Wednesdays at its South Lowestoft Methodist Church headquarters on London Road South, regularly attracts between 30 and 40 elderly Kirkley residents.
However, for the thriving club to continue, urgent kitchen facilities and equipment were needed - and Lowestoft South councillor Mr Mountford stepped in to help them out by handing over vital money this week.

With a new dishwasher required, this donation will form part of the funding towards the estimated cost of �2000. And there was a tasty treat for Mr Mountford, as he sampled the delights on offer at the club.
The county councillor and UK Independence Party member said: 'For this facility to continue, the club requires catering standard dishwashing equipment, and the �500 from my locality budget will allow the purchase of this to go ahead.'
