Lunch Club’s Seaside Special, 70 miles from the coast

15 July 2021

There’s nothing quite like a day at the seaside; sun, sand, ice cream, deck chairs and if you’re very lucky even fish and chips… and with the aid of the brilliant team from Engage Leeds this is what MBC’s Lunch Club enjoyed last Wednesday.Meeting all together for the first time in almost 16 months, 21 seniors gathered under our gazebos whilst Carole Smith and her team of 9 volunteers served up a real seaside treat. The Engage Leeds team (below left) who brought their ‘Seaside reminiscence pod’ with them are a housing support organisation in Leeds who use this type of event to get themselves known in the community. They support people with memory problems to remain in their home, to move house or to deal with complex housing needs. In fact besides handing out some of their literature on the day they left lots of information with us so if you or anyone you know might benefit from their support just speak with Carole, Kate, any member of the Interim Leadership or contact them direct by going on line and visiting www.engageleeds.org.uk As Senior’s Lead our thanks go to Carole for organising such an innovative session, which also included prize bingo, word searches and a free to enter raffle. However, Carole being Carole she insists on passing her personal thanks not only to Engage but also to our fabulous volunteer befrienders and kitchen team, to Holbeck Together for again allowing us to use their minibus and driver and last but by no means least to the Talk of the Town for serving up 30 portions of the tastiest fish and chips this side of Scarborough. 🐟🍟
