THOSE who may be alone on Christmas day are invited for a festive lunch with turkey and trimmings.

Even if we can't stand Christmas pudding or Brussels sprouts - most of us enjoy the chance to be with others on Christmas Day.

Many people, not through choice, find themselves alone on December 25.

Cirencester's churches are inviting 100 people to lunch on Christmas Day, 1pm at the Baptist Church on Chesterton Lane.

Pastor Obaro, who is co-ordinating the meal for Churches Together in Cirencester said: "If someone is on their own, and would like to be with others for Christmas day, then we would love to welcome them for lunch."

If you would like a free ticket to come for lunch, or you would like to offer practical or financial support - contact Churches Together on 01285 643510.
