Online Clubs

In addition to our Community Clubs, Brendoncare offers members the chance to join in virtually, too. Online chat groups, themed classes and exercise sessions all take place via Zoom video call, a free-to-download app for your smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.

Online meetups are a great way for members to keep connected, especially if, for whatever reason, they are unable to attend our community clubs in person. And, if a Brendoncare member goes on holiday or stays with their family for any length of time, our online clubs are a fantastic way to be part of the fun and friendship… Wherever you are. Plus, you can join as many as you like!
