Since it was founded in 1973, the Mixed Group has organised a Christmas lunch for lonely and elderly people from across Welwyn Hatfield.

Each Christmas, the group caters for around 120 guests at Douglas Tilbe House in Hall Grove, Welwyn Garden City, with dedicated groups of drivers transporting guests to and from the venue and voluntary musicians providing entertainment.

The charity received a £1,000 donation in November from a fair and auction at Welwyn Garden City's Masonic Lodge, which Mixed Group founder Sean Cox spent on Christmas presents for the guests.
