The seventh annual ‘Be a Santa to a Senior’ event, held in Twyford, was attended by special guest Theresa May.
Colleton Primary School hosted Theresa May along with 120 elderly residents from the area.
The school choir and local musician Ben Whitmore both provided entertainment along with MC Paul Johnson of Home Instead Senior Care.
Home Instead Senior Care organised the event along with other businesses Age Concern, The David Brownlow Foundation, TimeFinders and Twyford Together.
Home Instead sponsored the leaving gifts – a box of biscuits – while TimeFinders sponsored the Bucks Fizz welcome drinks. All guests left with a hand coloured Christmas card, made by the children of Colleton School.
Melissa Johnson, co-director at Home Instead Maidenhead, Henley and Wallingford, commented: “This event is always so wonderful, it really is a highlight of the Christmas season for us as well as our guests. Everyone works so hard in making it a joyous afternoon and we are very thankful and honoured to be joined by Teresa May who really does go out of her way to spend time with every single person who attends the party.
“It is our small way of making sure we give a little back to the older generation and ensure they start the festive season with a good party and catching up with friends.”
