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!
If you’re interested in starting a Brendoncare membership, please call us 01962 857 099 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll happily answer any questions you might have and discuss your options.
