A care home in Hay-on-Wye has partnered with Community Christmas to throw open its doors to elderly people who are facing Christmas Day alone this year.

Sylvia Illingsworth, home manager at Cartref, said: “We know loneliness is a growing issue for elderly people – at Christmas and all year round.
“It’s great that we are in a position to support Community Christmas by opening our doors on Christmas Day to offer our elderly community somewhere they can enjoy a traditional Christmas dinner and some festive fun in the company of others. I know our residents are look forward to welcoming some new faces to the table on Christmas Day.”
