Charlton Kings Senior Citizen’s Welfare Committee
Charlton Kings Senior Citizens' Welfare Committee provides support to the senior citizens of Charlton Kings with the aim of helping them to stay in their own homes and enjoy an improved quality of life. Those without means of transport are taken to a supermarket fortnightly on our minibus. Passengers are taken door-to-door, with helpers to carry their shopping. Two clubs for senior citizens meet weekly, the Luncheon Club on Thursdays, and Happy Circle on Friday afternoons. Transport to the clubs can be provided by the minibus, which can take wheelchair passengers too. Occasional special events are arranged, such as a 'Holiday At Home' in the summer, and a Christmas Carol Service in December. Transport may be provided for other occasions, such as for local Christmas shows and for outings.
The committee has been supporting Charlton Kings senior citizens for over 60 years.
Meets 10.00 – 12.00 at Sacred Hearts Hall. An Italian Group and History of Art Group also meet here. Contact office for details.
