THE future of regular lunches to enable the elderly of the area to keep in touch with others and enjoy a sociable meal together has been boosted by a donation from Tesco at Penzance.

Store manager Matt Roland and checkout manager Liz Miller have presented Anne Oakley, manager of the Penwith Volunteer Bureau, with a cheque for £3,475 at a recent lunch at Gulval Village Hall.

The money will be used to help pay for the lunches which take place every two months.

Ms Miller said: "The idea is to break down the social and rural isolation experienced by many of these people and to give them something regular to look forward to."
