No one should have to be alone on Christmas day, but unfortunately for some, many have to face the festive period by themselves.
Throughout December, charities will do their best to make sure those who are without company will be able to have a meal and a drink with someone else. However, on the 25th, when being with people matters, that's when it really means something when somewhere gives lonely people somewhere to be.
Shish, a Muslim owned restaurant in Sidcup, London, will be welcoming the elderly, homeless and anyone who might eat alone to their restaurant between noon and 6pm on Christmas day.
They'll be serving up three-course meals for free, with soup as a starter, chicken shish or vegetarian casserole as the main and rice pudding for dessert.
Absolutely beautiful, amid all the hatred and the bile, a shining beacon restoring one's faith in humanity. Well done Shish Restaurant! https://t.co/HsNDRL40iN- RiksRedGuard (@RiksRedGuard) 4 December 2016
The decision has had heaps of praise across social media, with people saying that they'd happily come in and pay for a meal to help Shish cover the costs.
