Senior Citizens' Lunch

Senior citizens from the surrounding area enjoyed a Christmas lunch this week at Henderson Mess on RAF Halton. Over 100 of them were served a four course meal by Station personnel and Servicemen Awaiting Trade Training (SATT’s).

After a game of bingo and a raffle, attended by Father Christmas, the party music began, courtesy of the Dan Blaze Disco, and the dancing started. Flight Lieutenant Louise Jane who organised the event, said: “Organising the Senior Citizens Christmas lunch took a lot of work but seeing how much the guests appreciated our efforts made it all worthwhile; dancing and interacting with the SATTs seemed to be the highlight of the day, along with some well received prizes for the bingo and the raffle.  It was great to hear that this was the liveliest one they had been to and it is safe to say that this was down to the good humour of the SATTs.  It was heart-warming to see how much an event like this meant to them all and honestly made the whole thing a pleasure to do.”
