Generous donation allows members of the local community to join first team players Christmas dinner

Thanks to a generous donation from Dennis Rawlings, a number of local deserving people in the community were warmly welcomed to the players Christmas dinner this year. They have all served the local community in Abbey Ward over the last year in a number of ways and it was great to recognise and reward their involvements.

Stuart Wood, Minister at Barnwell Baptist Church, said “It has been a real privilege for us to have been offered places at the CUFC Christmas lunch for the past 3 years and for us to give these to both volunteers and those who are deserving from the local community. I know that everyone who has attended has been really pleased and, as one lady commented this year, to have a night out was such a thrill and change. Can I, on behalf of the local community, thank the sponsor who makes this available – it does make such a difference.”

Lorna McNeur said, “The Abbey Orchard Volunteer Team was delighted to be invited to the CUFC Christmas dinner. Five of us in total. We all had a really lovely evening. Good company, good fun, and good food! The vegetarian and vegan options were not only delicious but exemplary! Many thanks from us all!”
