Alone at Christmas

Alone at Christmas - Providing Christmas Day lunch and entertainment to around 70 local residents who would otherwise be alone on Christmas Day. Now in our 36th year!




Festive cheer was in abundance on 25th December 2023 when almost 80 people were treated by local Rotarians to a Christmas Day lunch and party.

We opened the doors of Our Lady of Ransom church hall to party-goers who would otherwise have spent the day alone.

Eastbourne and Willingdon MP Caroline Ansell joined rotarians and volunteers in serving and entertaining guests at the club’s annual “Alone At Christmas” event.

“A great time was had by all,” said guest co-ordinator, Ian Huke. “A huge thank you to our club members, to our volunteers for helping with transport and hosting – and to the party-goers themselves for making it, as always, such a fun event.”

With the party in full swing, rotarian and organiser Cris Haniver is pictured, left to right, with club president Alan Langley, young helper Logan Gisby, Mayor of Eastbourne Cllr Candy Vaughan, and MP Caroline Ansell.
