Providing a weekly Day Centre and activities for elderly people in Hucknall.
To enable elderly & isolated elderly people get away from their own four walls, and meet with others, for a wide range of activities and a hot sustaining meal each Friday.Why the community needs us
Encouragement towards a positive support for those who would otherwise be unable to get out from their own four walls, and enable them to take part in a wide porogramme of activities. With the recent closure of other Day Centres in the area, this work has become even more important in the last year or two, and is a vital part of our local community outreach.Our impact on the community
We always see a new lease of life in our members when they join and take part in all that we have to offer. This is regularly commented upon by their families, doctors, social workers etc when they visit the Centre and see the lively and vibrant atmosphere that is always a feature of our meetings.
We need a few more committed volunteers to help each Friday in a variety of ways, inluding minibus escort, setting out & clearing up, helping the elderly members around the premises, serving the meals & refreshments, talking and listening to the members etc.
