The Christmas Event
Lewis School, Pengam – Caerphilly Over 50
Mike Oliver, recently retired assistant head at Lewis School, Pengam, joined our Steering Committee this summer. He has long supported the inter-generational Lunch Club at the school. He had hoped to have a special event for the Lunch Club this Christmas and asked the Committee if it was possible to provide some financial support. We were delighted to be able to support the event by sponsoring the entertainers and extend an invitation to Forum members.
An excellent Christmas meal was enjoyed by 80 attendees. Throughout the meal we were entertained by 2 professional entertainers: the act included George Formby, trumpet solos, duets and solo vocals. Oh, by the way, they were both old boys of the school.
It was particularly pleasing to see the range of groups that attended; Lunch Club, Forum
Members, Carers (unpaid), Care Home, Stroke Group, Church group.
We were also able to generate a small surplus of funds to make a donation to the British Legion.
Finally; a huge thank you to Lewis School, Pengam and their head master, Chris Parry, for their continued support for the Lunch Club and Intergenerational initiatives.
