Party-goers enjoyed carols, gift giving and festive food at an annual Christmas party organised by the charity Age UK Camden.

More than 60 people from across the Camden borough got together for the festive gathering on Thursday (14th December) at the charity’s head office in Tavistock Square.

The event is held annually for people who use Age UK Camden’s services throughout the year.

Visitors to the party enjoyed a Christmas meal and carols from Age UK’s choir before each receiving a gift.

The party was supported for the second year running by developer Fairview New Homes.

Suzy Barber, Fundraising Officer for Age UK Camden, said: “Our client Christmas party has become a popular fixture in our social calendar. We invite people who we know will be spending Christmas Day alone because it’s important to give them a chance to enjoy a party at this time of year.

“We rely a great deal on the backing and donations we receive from businesses to provide essential services to the people who need support from us, delivering on our promises and creating a sense of community for many.

“We’d like to thank Fairview for supporting our Christmas party again and for helping us to put on such a fun and enjoyable event for our clients.”

Jeremy Gee, Main Board Director for Fairview, said: “We were very keen to show our support for the Age UK Camden Christmas party again this year after seeing how much party-goers enjoyed last year’s event.

“Christmas is a time for friendship and togetherness, so it was inspiring to see all of Age UK Camden’s clients having a good time in each other’s company, and we are proud to have been part of the event.”
