Mayor Joe Anderson attended the Devonshire House Hotel in Liverpool to support Queenie’s Christmas party.
Organised by hairdresser Herbert Howe and named in honour of his late mother, the charity holds a series of festive events for local people.
Over 1,000 pensioners benefit from the events, which are aimed at spreading cheer and happiness to those in need.
Children also attend a party at Liverpool Town Hall, and on Christmas Day there’s a festive lunch for 1,000 people at the Crowne Plaza and Adelphi Hotels.
