THEY say there is no such thing as a free lunch, but a Warwick couple says there is for those facing Christmas alone.
Warwick district councillor Terry Morris and Liz Jackson usually spend Christmas at home with family.
But this year will be much different for the kind-hearted pair, who are offering a free three-course Christmas lunch to anyone facing spending the day on their own.
Dad-of-two Terry told the Observer: “We love Warwick and have always enjoyed the events which take place in and around the town. We wanted to do something ourselves for the community.
“We discovered that there doesn’t seem to be anything similar in Warwick on Christmas Day and so decided to create a bit of a festive get-together for anyone who has not got the opportunity to share the day with others.”
The meal is set to be held at The Court House in Jury Street and has been made possible due to sponsorship and donations from the likes of Warwick Town Council, Warwick Court Leet and Aubrey Allen.
Anyone living in Warwick is invited, and there is space to accommodate up to 80 guests.
The pair ask that people make their own travel arrangements, but say they can help organise transportation.
Terry added: “We wanted to create a Christmas lunch for anyone who has not got the opportunity to share the day with others this year. Spaces are limited so please contact us to secure a place.”
