Christmas Cheer Spread by Rochdale Road Medical Centre and Healing Humanity with Special Lunch

Healing Humanity, a charity operating from Rochdale Road Medical Centre, recently held a festive Christmas Lunch, bringing joy to its patients and local residents. The Charity and Practice identified a group of isolated, elderly, and lonely individuals who would greatly benefit from such a social event, noting that many had been housebound for extensive periods.

Jackie McCann, the Charity Lead, and Dr. Salman Shahid, were at the forefront of this compassionate initiative. They decided on hosting a luncheon as the ideal way to foster community spirit and togetherness. To bring their plan to fruition, they collaborated with local charities. Demesne Community Centre graciously hosted the event, creating a festive and inviting atmosphere. Bowlee Community Centre’s volunteers played a key role in serving the guests. Contributions towards the expenses were kindly made by Wellens Funeral Directors and Status 4 All, while Tesco Middleton donated table essentials like tablecloths, serviettes, and crackers. The food was provided by Healing Humanity.

The attendees enjoyed a delightful three-course Christmas Lunch. For those requiring transportation, arrangements were made, and the event started with a heartwarming performance by children from the Buttons and Bows nursery. The day ended on a high note with a carol singalong and a much-anticipated visit from Santa Claus.

The feedback from the attendees was overwhelmingly positive. They thoroughly relished the experience, and several expressed their appreciation in letters to the surgery, commending the fantastic day and proposing a similar event in the summer.

This Christmas Lunch was a testament to the power of community collaboration, providing a day filled with happiness and festive cheer to those who might otherwise not have experienced such joy during the Christmas season.
