Our office will be getting fit and having fun week commencing 7th December to raise money for a very worthwhile charity, Bring Joy, a charitable trust set up by Home Instead. Staff will be cycling 50 miles each day for five days to provide funds towards Memory Lane Farnborough, a social club supporting older people, including those with dementia.
Clubs such as this become even more important during times like these, where the requirement to self-isolate can create feelings of loneliness and social isolation. Although our CAREGivers do a fantastic job supporting people, it is not the same as getting out and meeting others in a social environment.
Although we have had to suspend the club during the Coronavirus pandemic, we are hopeful that we can re-open it in 2021, again in the Masonic Lodge, a large, spacious environment. Clubs such as this bring so much joy to old people in our community.
