Westbourne Parish hall was the venue for the annual festive bash of Ems Valley Community Transport.
The not-for-profit organisation provides lifts for elderly people who need to attend hospital or GP appointments.
Clients came together for the merry knees-up, which was funded by local businesses and personal donations.
Pauline Robinson, a member of the group’s committee, said: ‘It went very well and everyone enjoyed it.
