An initiative for lonely elderly people is launching at the Terence Brown Arc in Hermit Road Park, Canning Town.

From March, young people from Ambition, Aspire, Achieve will be running a club for over 50s who are looking to make friends or find a new hobby.

The charity typically works with young people in the borough who have special needs, have been expelled from school, or are considered at risk.

But the new ‘Sunday Lunch and More’ club is branching out to the elderly, providing them with a place to go every other Sunday.

Transport to and from home will be provided for free, along with a hot meal. There will also be music, games and activities, including bingo with prizes.

Visitors will be able to use the centre’s books and DVD loan system and learn about the trips out and workshops the charity also has to offer.

To find out more and book your ride and place, contact Jackie on 0207 511 4253 or jackiemattock@theaaazone.com.
