Run by registered charity Brendoncare Clubs, the club will offer a range of games and quizzes for older people, providing weekly entertainment and the chance to meet up with friends both old and new.
Brendoncare runs a range of clubs for older people across Hampshire and Dorset. These include exercise clubs, clubs which meet in local pubs, singing groups and even a new gardening club. A selection of clubs meet in local libraries at the weekends and the Portchester club is the latest one to be launched by the charity.
Brendoncare’s Head of Club Services, Edwin Ingleton, said “We know from experience that people live happier and more fulfilled lives if they are able to enjoy the companionship of like-minded people and mix with friends. Loneliness doesn’t suddenly stop at 5pm on a Friday night and that is why offering social opportunities at the weekend is so important, when many other services don’t run and families may be busy with other commitments.”
Launching on 17 June, the club will meet every Saturday between 10am and 12 noon at Portchester Library, West Street, Portchester, PO16 9TX. The weekly cost, on a pay as you go basis, is £2.50, which includes refreshments.
