Bill celebrating with volunteers at Kennedy Lunch Club

It was quite a party for Kennedy Lunch Club guest, Bill Ledger when fellow guests and volunteers gathered to wish him a happy 90th birthday.

After sharing a delicious, four-course meal together and catching up with each other's news at their regular lunch club get-together, everyone surprised Bill with a gift, card, a chorus of 'Happy Birthday' and lots of warmth and friendship.

The special birthday lunch consisted of home-made broth, freshly baked ham, chips served with a buttered bun, Vienetta and tea, coffee and biscuits.

Kennedy Lunch Club, which is run by volunteers, welcomes dozens of guests from the local area each week, helping them to feel part of their community and providing a friendly place to enjoy time with others and share in some fun, company and conversation.

"Celebrating birthdays together is all part of the service!" said volunteer, Maeve.
