There’s a meal for those in need on Christmas Day as a cafe is opening at St Olave’s Precinct, on the Howard Estate, in Bury St Edmunds.
Allison’s Eatery opens from noon to 3pm, on December 25, primarily for those alone or in need of friendship and company over the festive period.
It’s being opened by Allison Knight and she said: “I would like to open it also to any of the emergency services in the area at the time, or looking for somewhere to have a well earned break, pop in for a free coffee, sausage roll, piece of cake or a meal if there is space.”
She said donations have been coming in “thick and fast from the wonderful people of Bury St Edmunds”.
And she added she has been “so overwhelmed and cannot thank everyone enough.”
