The Welcome Group which meets weekly at Henhayes Centre, enjoyed a day trip to West Bay, thanks to a grant from the Bring Joy Foundation. The day trip included tea and coffee in the sunshine, a fish and chip lunch at the George Hotel and ended with ice creams by the river to the harbour. Stephanie Upton-Pittaway, manager at Henhayes Centre said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to all who attended for making the day so great and an even bigger thank you to the Bring Joy Foundation for making it possible. What made the day out even better was the fact that it was free.”
The grant covered the majority of the cost of the trip and the remainder was topped up by money raised from the weekly raffle. The Welcome Group which meets on Tuesdays at Henhayes Centre is open to anyone over the age of 55 years. It provides fun, companionship and camaraderie with live entertainment, games, arts and crafts, a two course hot lunch, raffle and a short bingo session. For more information on the Welcome Group please telephone 01460 74340 or call into Henhayes Centre and speak to volunteers on reception duties.
