More than 80 elderly residents from across Hounslow enjoyed a Yuletide knees up thanks to the generosity of local firms.
Pensioners Alone at Christmas laid on a festive feast at Hounslow Youth Centre in Kingsley Road, Hounslow, on the big day, where visitors also enjoyed live music, comedy and games.
But the charity could not have made it happen without the support of businesses like Hounslow-based chartered surveyors Acrewoods, which gave £150, and Dunphys, which contributed £100.
Pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline again provided £1,000 for the annual event, while Hounslow Rotary Club chipped in with £500.
Volunteers picked the pensioners up from addresses across the borough on Thursday morning and teenagers with learning disabilities escorted them to and from the minibuses.
Entertainers travelled from as far afield as the south coast and the guests, many of whom would otherwise find themselves isolated at one of the hardest times of the year, left with goody bags packed with fruit, calendars and other gifts.
Volunteer Lorna Stephens said: "The event's always very popular with the pensioners, who get to see old friends who they might not be able to meet otherwise, and have a goo catch up.
"We're so grateful for the generosity of various organisations, without which this could not take place."
