March Social Clubs with Liverpool Cares

posted in: News 0

Please note: Due to the spread of Coronavirus, Liverpool Cares have made the difficult decision to suspend Social Clubs from Friday 13th March until Thursday 30th April 2020. They said: “As a charity that brings together people over 65 and their younger neighbours across Liverpool, it is our foremost priority to protect the health and wellbeing of our community, particularly those most at risk.”

HOP will continue to update members when we receive updates from Liverpool Cares. 

 

Social Clubs in March 2020

Below is a list of Liverpool Cares’ ​free​ Social Clubs in Liverpool for people aged 65 and above. All of the 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.
