Benarty Kids Community Club Christmas Day lunch
EDM #47
Tabled 09 January 2020
2019-21 Session
That this House congratulates Benarty Kids Community Club on organising the first ever free Christmas Day community lunch at the Lochore Institute; understands that the event was organised entirely by volunteers for the whole community, particularly anyone vulnerable or facing spending the day alone, as well as those who simply wished to celebrate Christmas surrounded by friendly faces; notes that around 40 people enjoyed a delicious three-course meal in return for a modest donation to the local foodbank; believes that the strength of community spirit shown by the organisers and volunteers who helped out on the day is testament to the kind-hearted and compassionate nature of the people of Benarty; and pays credit to Benarty Kids Community Club for the difference it makes to the lives of so many Benarty families, not just on Christmas Day, but all year round.
