Day centre manager Maureen Moore said: “We take up to 20 people a day so, after some call-offs, we had about 70 people in total.

“They had their hats on and got dressed up. It was great fun and they really enjoyed it.

“We are dealing with a lot of lonely or isolated people, so this day really meant a lot to them.

“They really enjoyed it, being with other people and coming together to celebrate the royal wedding.”
