A community lunch was held to ensure those usually isolated over Christmas were well-fed and feeling festive.
More than 100 people enjoyed a Christmas feast at The Salvation Army Lowestoft Citadel, on Battery Green Road.
Visitors enjoyed a traditional Christmas meal followed by carol singers and presents.
Beryl Carr, 80, was one of those enjoying the celebrations on the day.
She said: “Since my husband passed away five years ago I have been coming down here.
“They do such a marvellous job helping everybody and it’s a lovely atmosphere - it’s much better than spending Christmas alone.”
Adrian Allen, lieutenant at the Citadel, said: “Christmas is traditionally a time when families come together but many don’t have that.
“God wants us to live as a community connected to him and others.
“This dinner means people who would be in isolation can come together at this important time.”
