Club Friday

Bourne Valley Day Centre, known as Club Friday is a charity providing a weekly day centre held on Fridays in Idmiston Village Hall for the elderly and lonely. Volunteers provide transport and the club is suitable for those who are fairly mobile and do not require personal care.

The day includes coffee and a morning entertainment, gentle exercise or crafts, a hot lunch and the afternoon entertainment may be music, singing or a talk. The charge is £11 per guest and we meet from 10am-3pm.

If you or a relative or person in your community might benefit by joining us, please get in touch. Similarly, we always need more volunteers and drivers.

Volunteer drivers receive a mileage allowance, and we hope to build up a rota so that this doesn't need to be every Friday. Volunteers helping during the day, again on a rota, enjoy a day chatting with our guests, helping with activities and serving a prepared lunch. This could be a few hours, a full day and/or weekly or monthly, but a fulfilling role.
