A Christmas dinner for lonely elderly people will take place in Philips Stadium at the end of the year.

GGzE, the Eindhoven branch of the Dutch Association of Mental Health and Addiction Care, is organising a five course dinner for the guests. It will be the fifth edition of the event, and the second time it will be held in Philips Stadium.

GGzE is asking for donations to help make the event possible. They estimate that the dinner will cost €30. Thanks to the work of volunteers and several corporate sponsors, the organisers are able to keep the costs low.

Currently, around €1,500 has been raised, though the total costs are expected to reach €6,000.

In previous years, interest in the dinner far outnumbered the number of places available.
