Norman Pace, comedy actor of Hale and Pace fame, was the surprise Master of Ceremonies at a recent Christmas Lunch for senior citizens organised by local housing EastendHomes and supported by Barclays volunteers.
Over 120 guests enjoyed a delicious three course lunch with all the trimmings at Southern Grove Community Centre in Mile End on Thursday 7 December served by over 30 employee volunteers from Barclays. This festive event was funded by EastendHomes.
Paul Wilson, EastendHomes' Community Engagement Manager said:
"We are now in the third year of running this hugely popular event for our senior citizens. It’s fantastic to see everyone come together and have a good old East End knees-up. A huge thank you to Barclays employee volunteers and Norman Pace for being such a brilliant host."
