VOLUNTEERS were out in force to ensure it was a Happy Christmas for many.
And their efforts in Huddersfield meant about 100 elderly and homeless people enjoyed a Christmas dinner and entertainment in Paddock.
The event was hosted at the Jubilee Centre to ensure the most vulnerable people in the community could have a hot meal and celebrate the festivities.
The event was hosted by 40 volunteers, many of them Round Table members, who cooked the full Christmas dinner at 2.30pm.
A further eight volunteers helped ferry the elderly to and from the centre in their own cars.
One of them was Nadeem Uddin, 31, of Birkby. He said: “This is the second year I have been involved with the Christmas Day lunch at the Jubilee Centre.
“It really is a fantastic event and unites people who would otherwise have spent the day alone or without food and shelter”.
The event is funded by the Round Table with money raised this year at events including Holmfirth Duck Race and Crosland Moor Bonfire.
