Christmas can be a particularly lonely time for those who live on their own without the support of local friends or family but Kempton House is once again opening its doors on Christmas Day to bring some festive cheer to many local older people who would otherwise be home alone. Volunteers at the popular local day centre in Cavell Avenue Peacehaven will donate their time and skills to open the Centre and ensure that many local residents will be able to enjoy a full traditional Christmas Meal and a drink whilst enjoying the company of others and even receive a small Christmas present.
But having somewhere to go is only part of the solution so Community Transport for the Lewes Area (CTLA) is delighted to be playing its part by providing transport to get participants to and from the festive celebration at Kempton House, in safety and comfort, with the cost of providing the transport being generously funded by the Rotary Club.
CTLA is an award winning provider of affordable, accessible and safe transport, particularly for socially isolated people and those living with disabilities or limited mobility. Last year the charity facilitated in excess of 80,000 passenger-journeys enabling many individuals to continue to live an independent and fulfilling life.
