There was plenty of merriment at The Railway in Leyland after the pub hosted a free Christmas dinner for people who feel isolated.
Landlady Annamarie Andrew organised for members of Just Good Friends in St Annes to enjoy a party to ensure no-one felt lonely this Christmas.
She said: “This is the second year I have done something like this, as last year I organised a party for members of Helped the Aged.
“People get the wrong idea about Christmas as it is about sharing and giving back.
“I used to run a pub in St Annes and looked after the friendship group Just Good Friends. I kept in touch with them and wanted to give them a treat.
“I want to thank Avacab for bringing the people from St Annes and back again for free.
“The party went absolutely well and everyone had a fabulous time. My other half, James Andrew, was the DJ and the other staff pulled together to make sure everyone had a good time. Local businesses donated gifts for prizes.”
