A big-hearted local family are reaching out this Christmas to try and ensure that nobody is alone on the big day.

The Hendry’s, who live in Irvine, run Townhead Cafe in Stevenston and they are giving back to the local community by providing Christmas dinner absolutely free.

The brainchild of 15-year-old Greenwood Academy pupil Jack, the cafe is offering two sittings on the day between 12-2pm or 2-4pm.

Any vulnerable, elderly or lonely people in the Three Towns and Kilwinning are invited along and there is transport available too from cafe owner Rab.

And there will be a wee gift for everyone who goes along.

For any more details or to book your place call 01294 286497.
