Woman is buying Christmas dinner for 50 strangers

The retired teacher - who wants to remain anonymous - was an only child and doesn't have any close relatives.

But this year, she has decided to become Mrs Santa Claus by booking out the Lamb and Flag pub in Devon the day before Christmas Eve and footing the £1,000 bill, so anyone in her local area who might not have friends and family to celebrate with can still have a turkey dinner and wine.

The generous woman told The Daily Mirror: "I've been watching TV about foodbanks and people by themselves being in trouble. Usually I send money to charities, this year I thought about doing something local."

We think that's the nicest thing we've heard all year - and we hope they have a fantastic day!
