Liverpool Cares November Social Clubs

posted in: News 0

Liverpool Cares is a charity which brings together older people and volunteers to share friendship in Liverpool.

Below is a list of their free Social Clubs in Liverpool for people aged 65 and above. All of these events are hosted by people in their twenties and thirties who want to meet you and hear your stories. Share your skills and learn new ones, all while making new friends in your community!

Please call Abbie on 0151 659 1789 to book your place on any of these clubs. Some clubs have limited space, and it’s important that they know who’s coming along! ​You can also call if you’d like any more information or if you are unsure how to get to the clubs from your home.

Monday 4 November 6 – 8pm: Parlour Games – City Centre

Play some traditional parlour games in this modern setting! We play fun memory games like “I went to the shop and I bought…” as well as tactical games like “Up Jenkins”. There’s charades, pictionary and more. We will bring all of the rules so no need to know them beforehand. This club is always full of fun and laughter, why not give it a go?
