Newbury’s CTNA Christmas Day Event a big success at St George’s

Sam and Joanna Abraham Pastors of The RCCG, Jesus Disciples Centre in Newbury and a dedicated team of volunteers again organised the Community Christmas Day Event on behalf of the Christians Together in the Newbury Area (CTNA) on Christmas Day.

In celebrating the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, we stay with the vision to make sure that no elderly person is left on their own or goes hungry/ without a cooked meal on Christmas Day. We demonstrated the love that Jesus stands for by providing meals for a total of 96 elderly people; we supported 36 elderly people to attend St Georges for the Christmas Day Event and delivered 56 meals to elderly people at home who could not attend for one health reason or the other. Each guest received a goodie bag containing amongst other content for tea time.

The Mayor of Newbury Cllr. Gary Norman was in attendance and spent a couple of hours with the guests. There were about 40 volunteers including children, drivers and entertainers.  The meal was prepared by Chef Martin Maskell and his amiable team at St Georges’ Church Hall Kitchen along the Andover Road. Amongst our generous volunteers was Councilor Phil Barnett and his lovely wife Vera.

There was a lot of positive vibe around the room. One volunteer was so touched by event and said that one of the elderly men reminded her of her late Dad. She expressed that she was glad to have the opportunity to make a difference on such an important day.
