Managers at the Bradbury Centre in Bonar Bridge were determined Covid-19 was not to going to spoil the day care unit’s traditional Christmas lunch, one of the highlights of the year.

Social distancing rules meant the centre was unable to offer its usual party and sit-down meal so instead it was decided to make doorstep deliveries of turkey and all the trimmings.

Last Wednesday 71 free lunches, along with Christmas gifts, were delivered to the independently run unit’s clients, most of whom are elderly.

Manager Lorraine Askew said: “It was lovely to see our those in the Tain and Dornoch area, most of whom we hadn’t seen since lockdown. I think they were delighted to see us!”

Donations towards the meal came from local businesses including Bookers Ltd; Munro Fruit and veg; Swordale Butchers; Kyle Bakery, The Pier, Lairg: Platform 1864, Tain; and Courthouse, Dornoch.

The centre is now closed for the festive period but will reopen when the January lockdown eases, although clients are still unable to attend.

“Hopefully this will change soon and we can get back to normal business,” said Mrs Askew.
