Blackbird Leys residents won’t be lonely this Christmas

Older person at ChristmasIf you live on Blackbird Leys in Oxford you definitely won’t be lonely this Christmas. Volunteers from the Leys CDI (Community Development Initiative) will be hosting a free Christmas dinner for residents young and old who would otherwise be alone.

Alongside the traditional Christmas dinner, there will be African, Indian and Polish cuisine on offer. Boxes packed with food, festive treats and a Christmas cracker are also being delivered to older people around the estate and in Cowley who are too frail to make it to the event.

Funding for the event has been provided by Catalyst, Greensquare and Oxford City councillors, including Lord Mayor Rae Humberstone.

If you would like to come along for Christmas dinner or if you would like to place an order for home delivery, please call 01865 395927.
