Restaurants donated food and drink to ensure those on their own weren't left out this Christmas.
The goods were donated to ACE who cooked and presented a sumptuous three-course Boxing Day lunch at the Astor Theatre in Deal.
The 31st annual event was attended by 79 guests, many of which received free transport to and from the venue.
Musical entertainment was provided by Steve King and the Ukelele Rollers.
The Mayor of Deal Cllr Eileen Rowbotham was also welcomed.
Spokesman Terry Bishop said: "We are grateful to the Astor Theatre for allowing ACE to host this traditional celebration for people from Deal and Walmer who might otherwise be on their own.
"Thanks to local restaurants, small businesses and individuals whose support means the whole event is provided for free.
"The event would also not be possible without the army of volunteer helpers, the professionals in the kitchen and the drivers.
"This is a big thank you to them all."
