We currently use 2 Community Transport accessible minibuses to transport our members to and from the social evenings, and demand appears to always exceed the availability 
Those persons with their own transport are immediately welcome

There is a raffle each week, the prizes for which are donated by members 
We rattle our 'penny jar' each week for those unwanted coppers! 
All outings are subsidised as are our holidays
What do we do? 
 Our weekly social evenings involve a chat, tea and biscuits, a game of cards, dominoes, scrabble, quizzes, bingo and anything else we can think of! 
A local trip out most months of the year 
A few days out each year including a midday meal 
Annual Holiday 
Regular Newsletter 
You name it and we will attempt to make it happen (No Bungie Jumping
!)
How do we do it? 
With a wonderful team of volunteer drivers, escorts, carers, helpers and organisers who donate in excess of 4,000 hours between them each year to make it all happen  
We aim to raise approx £10,000 each year to make our
activities happen, particularly to pay for accessible transport
