For the second consecutive year, Elastic FM treated local elderly people to some Christmas Cheer. Some of our wise and elderly local people were treated to an afternoon of food, fun and entertainment. Each guest went way with a gift, kindly provided by Chesterfield Shoebox Appeal.
Organizer of the event, Elastic FM Chairman David Lilley explained the motivation behind the event.
“Christmas is a lovely time of year but it can also be a very lonely time of year for elderly people who love alone and have little going on socially. This event is about a group of caring people coming together to tangibly show we care about our local elderly people. We’ve done it two years now and plan to make it a calendar event”
Clowne Cricket Club was the chosen venue. Local entertainer Rachel Egley sang a few seasonal songs and talented local organist Mick Drew played back some seasonal music.
Volunteers on the day included Marion Lilley, Bob Lilley, Sarah Lilley and Adrian Wilkinson.
“I would like to thank all of the Volunteers, especially my dad and step mum. They really went the extra mile to ensure people were aware of the event and worked hard on the day” added David Lilley
