Lunch club

Older people in Burntwood, Staffordshire will benefit from nearly £3,000 to be presented by Chase Terrace Co-operative Travel on Wednesday 6 December.

MHA’s Burntwood Live at Home Scheme, which combats loneliness and helps keep older people independent, has been the nominated charity of the travel agent in Burntwood for two years.  The five members of staff have raised the money with customer donations, quiz nights and other fundraising activities and have also been volunteering at Scheme activities such as the lunch club.

The money will be presented after a carol service at 2pm at St Joseph’s, Cannock Road.  The service will be open to the public.

Services offered by Burntwood Live at Home Scheme include outings, a friendship group, lunch clubs, dementia day care, a craft group, computing, befriending visits, a dance group and a newsletter. 

Scheme Manager Caroline Roberts said, “The Co-operative Travel team has been brilliant.  They’re a great bunch to work with and we’re very grateful for their support.  We’d like to thank them for all their hard work over the past two years and I know our members really appreciate the help they have given us.” 

Chase Terrace Co-operative Travel Manager Elaine Edge said, “Co-operative Travel is keen to give something back to the local community, so we always have a nominated charity, which we support financially and by donating our time.  One of our customers suggested the Live at Home Scheme and, when we found out what a brilliant job it does, we were only too pleased to support it.”
