One of the photos from Katherine Rose’s Lunch is Served collection, which appears in The Guardian. The caption under this image reads:
Great Croft day centre for the elderly, London.
Prawn cocktail, roast turkey, cheese and crackers, Christmas pudding, mince pie, Irish coffee.
Abul Choudhury, centre manager: “Christmas lunch is our big party of the year. We are a day centre for vulnerable elderly people. Many of our 60 guests have nowhere to go over Christmas, and 89% of them have no access to hot food. That’s why a Christmas meal is so important. “The atmosphere is always very buzzy and lively. We’ll have a piano and a singalong, and enjoy a few drinks. A lot of them tell me afterwards that it’s the best party they’ve been to in years.”
