NACC hosts HRH Duchess of Cornwall at Christmas luncheon club

The National Association of Care Catering (NACC) welcomed Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall at a special lunch designed to highlight the importance of community meals and luncheon club services to those who use them.

The Duchess joined more than 60 service users at the Jubilee Centre in St Albans as they celebrated their Christmas party, where she met NACC chair Neel Radia and took the time to find out what the luncheon club means to those in attendance and how it impacts their quality of life.

The Royal visit was part of the Duchess's work to raise awareness of social isolation in the community and her efforts to highlight the difference that luncheon clubs and meals on wheels can make to older people living independently in their own homes.

A luncheon club is regarded as a lifeline for many, giving people the opportunity to regularly socialise outside of their homes in a warm environment and to benefit from a tasty and nutritious meal alongside wellbeing and safety advice.

Radia commented: "We are thrilled and honoured that Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall has given her valuable support and time to this vital cause.
