About the Lunch Club
- We run a lunch club for older people (aged 60 and above) on Tuesdays in the Terry Wright Community Hall, Gleadless Valley: 11:30to 13:30.
- We can accommodate up to 20 people and provide transport to and from lunch club for those guests who need it.
- The lunch club is run by a team of volunteers who cook and serve a hot, nutritious meal, provide activities such as bingo and a raffle, and escort and drive guests on the minibus.
One Sheffield resident, Hannah, lost her husband just a year after moving here. When her husband died, she hardly knew anyone in the city and this made an emotional time even more difficult. She felt isolated and alone in her flat. Hannah’s niece found out about a “Chairobics” class run by Reach South Sheffield. Hannah joined this class, and then also became a member of the lunch club and started using our Fitbus to get to the gym. She has got to know a lot of local people through these activities and now feels as greater sense of belonging to her community.
“Without the encouragement and support of Reach Volunteers, I think I would have given up by now. Thanks to them I am starting to enjoy life again and feel part of the community.”
