Lunch club brightens Eileen's week

Guests enjoying lunch at Holy Cross Lunch Club

Being able to spend time at Holy Cross Lunch Club in Sunderland couldn't be more welcome in the life of one regular guest.

Before joining the lunch club, Eileen Buxton spent six days a week alone in the house; apart from joining her son for a meal once a week, she saw no-one.

Now, all that has changed with a weekly visit to Holy Cross Lunch Club where she is able to chat with others, join in with fun quizzes and activities and enjoy a delicious, freshly prepared lunch too!

"I used to wake up in the morning and thought it wasn't worth getting out of bed," said Eileen. "Now, I feel so different. I love coming here; it's given me a new lease of life. It's a God send."
