When the big day came the team were ready to go, with staff at the pub happily volunteering their time to serve the lunch.
180 homeless people enjoyed a free meal and live music at the pub on Sunday.
We’ve had the most incredible day here & are overjoyed to have fed 180 amazing people. Could there be a better Christmas gift? #coswecan
