A free Christmas dinner is on offer for Finsbury pensioners.

Fish Central, in Central Street, is hosting its fifth free yuletide lunch club on Saturday. The festive feed is open to any OAP with an EC1 postcode.

Diners can turn up on the day and tuck into homemade soup, traditional roast turkey and Christmas pudding from 12.30pm. George Hussein, 74, who runs the restaurant and started the EC1 Lunch Club in 2010, said: “It’s not every day you get to have a free lunch, and a free Christmas lunch at that.”
