Help with Christmas lunch was priceless
11:54am Wednesday 9th January 2013 in Letters
FOR more than 20 years, people in Wilton have had no need to spend Christmas Day alone. The churches in the town have been organising a traditional Christmas lunch for anyone who is elderly or lonely.
Christmas Day 2012 was no exception, with more than 60 guests and helpers enjoying a turkey meal with all the trimmings; either in Wilton Community Centre or at home for those who were housebound.
This would not have been possible without the generosity of many local organisations, traders and individuals who contributed in a variety of ways.
In particular we would like to record our thanks to Wilton Town Council, the Foresters Friendly Society, the trustees and caretakers of Wilton Community Centre, Reeve the Baker, Manor Farm Meats, Best Brothers and readers of the Salisbury Journal who donated gifts, which were given to all our guests.
For Jesus, there was no room in the inn; he taught his followers to show hospitality and love. We hope that those who came on Christmas Day felt something of that love.
