Festive lunches and parties are served on special occasions, such as Christmas and the Coronation.

Knutsford Community Transport supports their work by providing a minibus.

Local shops, including Booths, the Co-op and Waitrose have generously donated food on occasions.

Volunteer Sian Holan said: “The club provides a warm welcome to our clients each week and is a valued part of the local community.

“The volunteers derive a lot of pleasure from running the club and members really enjoy coming along.

“For some, it is their only outing each week.”

The club is  now looking for more volunteers, particularly people willing to help cook lunch.

Anyone interested in joining the lunch club team can call Sian on 07789 806776 for more details.
