The celebration was full of festive food, some of which was donated by a young couple who wished to give a little festive cheer.

The event was run by the Ilford Blind Welfare Association Volunteers and included raffles and carol singing.

"Fun was had by all," an association spokesman said.

Ilford Blind Welfare Association, a social club for blind and partially sighted people living in and around Ilford, will reconvene on January 13 next year in the York Room and would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy new year.
