A North Tyneside care home is throwing open its doors to ensure elderly people are not lonely this Christmas.
The Old Vicarage Care Home in Waterville Road, North Shields, is inviting any older people who would otherwise be alone to join its residents for Christmas Day.
There will be a free lunch and a warm, friendly atmosphere, and transport can even be arranged.
In the run-up to the big day there are also a number of events planned at the SVP Healthcare home, such as carol singing, decoration making and a Christmas party, that people are welcome to attend.
