Organisers of a Christmas Day lunch in Bideford have said thankyou to those who helped and attended.

Around 50 people turned up to a Christmas Day lunch in Bideford.

The lunch, put on by Intagr8, also had many volunteers giving their time.

Organiser Rachel Raper, of Intagr8, said: “Tesco supplied the meat and lots of local businesses, councillors and residents donated food, decorations, etc.

“We had a mix of ages from children up to 80, who would have been alone this Christmas.”

Everyone received presents donated by local people and the Bideford Rainbows.

Rachel added: “The atmosphere was amazing, with a big thank you to staff and youths at Bideford Youth Centre who let us take over centre.

“The children had written each person a Christmas card and made decorations and posters to everywhere look lovely”.
