Clubs of the Month – Christmas fun for Fareham and Gosport members

Written by: Alison Reijman Published: December 8, 2023

It is the most wonderful time of the year for Brendoncare’s community clubs as members and volunteers get into the Christmas spirit with parties and a wide range of festive activities.

South East Hampshire has a thriving club network. Our clubs of the month are Fareham and Gosport, who were celebrating in style on Tuesday (5th December).

Sixty members and volunteers gathered at the Gosport Centre for their Christmas party. Local duo Timeless provided the entertainment, singing popular songs from the 50s, 60s and 70s as well as some Christmas tunes. There was dancing, lots of laughs and some fabulous Christmas jumpers. The icing on the Christmas cake was a chorus of Happy Birthday for volunteer Len Keech.

The party ended with a light buffet accompanied by some Christmas tunes.

With Tuesday also being International Volunteer Day, everyone wants to pay special tribute and extend thanks to the amazing volunteer team who made it happen. They are: Ros and George Brown for preparing all the food, Dave & Denise Perry, birthday boy Len, Nina Mitchell, Elaine Chapman, Heather Harwood, Margaret Pearson, Derek Hadenham and George Payne for their help with setting up tables and chairs, driving members to and from the party, serving tea and coffee, washing up and putting everything away!

The doors are always open to new members at all Brendoncare’s Fareham and Gosport clubs. Everyone always receives a warm welcome as well as a chance to meet new friends and enjoy a range of fun activities. Volunteers are also always welcome to support and help out at the clubs.

Do drop us a line here. We look forward to hearing from you.

Happy Christmas to all our wonderful community club members and volunteers!
