BLACON High School students served up a Christmas treat to local pensioners.
Youngsters on the Year 11 Food Technology GCSE course served a four-course Christmas lunch to 62 local residents at the high school on Melbourne Road.
The students helped head of technology Jacqueline Ash cook, serve and clean up after the meal, which included Florida cocktail, traditional roast turkey with all the trimmings, Christmas pudding with brandy sauce, mince pies and petit fours.
Mrs Ash said: “This is the 13th year that we’ve done the lunch.
“Most of the guests come from local churches and local groups for senior citizens.”
A large group of pensioners come from the congregations of the Holy Trinity Church, Blacon and St Theresa’s RC Church and also the Help the Aged afternoon club as well as grandparents of the students.
At the end of the meal there was a free raffle with winners taking home table decorations, including poinsettias and home made Christmas cakes.
