Between 35 and 40 senior citizens tucked into an early Christmas meal at the Sir John Gleed School in Spalding .
School chef Anthony Bursey came up with the idea of entertaining elderly folk with a turkey roast.
A spokesman at the school said Anthony and his catering team were assisted by about a dozen Health and Social Care students in serving the meals and entertaining their guests.
In addition, the senior citizens were shown some of the work of pupils who belong to the school’s craft club.
The food was all donated by local individuals and businesses, as were the hampers given to everyone who attended and prizes in the raffle.
• Guest Jean Lovegrove is looked after by Sir John Gleed School pupils Kai Weston and Tom Hannam.
