Dedicated care home staff and volunteers who spend their free time helping to look after others were given a festive treat - when church volunteers turned the tables to wait on them.

Brandon Full Gospel Church, also known as The Harvest Centre, holds a Christmas meal every year for church volunteers, leaders and elderly worshippers.

But worship leader Rob McCarthy said: 'This year we thought it would be fitting to go outside of our norm and recognise those that have worked hard over the past year for people in our communities.'

For its first year, it has selected Brandon Day Centre as being one of the many organisations in the town worthy of a couple of hours where they can sit back and enjoy being wined and dined.

'We just thought these are guys that work really hard and that we'd honour them with a Christmas meal,' said Mr McCarthy, who was one of those rolling up his sleeves to serve, cook and clean at the event.'
