Age Concern Syston

We thought we would give you an update on all that’s been happening as we’ve been very busy over the last few months.
We’ve had several staff changes; Keith one of our longstanding drivers and Andy who has worked in the office for the last few years have both retired thanks to both for all their support. We have appointed a new team of staff, Donna and Denise have joined Yvonne in the office and Rajesh is now running a Friday daycare group.
We have a training program underway for staff and volunteers which, wherever possible, we will open to other local charities which will benefit not only our members but also the wider community.
Our Wednesday coffee mornings (10.00 to 11.30am Syston Methodist Church Hall) continue to be popular with 2024 program of events underway with reassuring talk from the local police in January, gardeners question time in February and the Happy Ukulele Band around Easter.
We have set the date, 23rd March 2024 10.00am to 2.00pm in the Methodist Church hall, for our Easter Craft Fayre so if you would like to have a stall please contact us on tel. 0116 260 1476 or email. info@ageconcernsyston.co.uk.
This is a big fundraiser for us so we would love to see you there supporting us. There will be a free Easter Egg Hunt for the children, Grand Raffle with £100 cash prize and refreshments. Remember we can use any of your unwanted gifts for our tombola and raffles which help us to raise funds to keep our charity running.
We continue to run regular minibus trips for our members and are always looking for volunteer drivers who may have some spare time occasionally.
We are developing our online presence so please follow us on Facebook and have a look at our soon to be updated website.
