Christmas Day this year won't be the happiest time of all, but there are still places for people to book a free Christmas dinner for those in need.
Family Life Church offer a free dinner to anyone who needs it, in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, sing some Christmas carols and give them an extensive gift bag to take home with a Christmas Present.
The dinners are held at East Thirsk Community Hall between 12:30pm and 4:30pm.
Please book in advance: Lydia on 01609 772868
This is the 6th Year of doing the Christmas Dinner to anyone who wants or need it.
