THERE will be a free Christmas dinner for anyone who needs one at Cork Penny Dinners again this year.
Penny Dinners co-ordinator Caitríona Twomey told The Echo that, while even though Covid-19 means that for the second year in a row indoor dining is not possible, a full Christmas dinner, with all the trimmings, will be on offer on Little Hanover Street.
Santa will officiate over the festive cheer, while Hank Wedel and the High Hopes Choir will provide musical accompaniment.
“The River Lee Hotel will supply the dinners, as it does every year, and everyone at Penny Dinners is extremely grateful to general manager Ruairi O’Connor and his staff for their unfailing generosity,” Ms Twomey said.
“The meals during the day will be from the River Lee Hotel, and then the meals on the night will be supplied by our good friends in Lavish. Michael Turtle will supply a fleet of cars from Exec Cars, as he always does, to deliver food all over the city.
“We are blessed in the friends we have in Cork Penny Dinners, and our Christmas wish is that nobody will go hungry,” Ms Twomey said.
