We were delighted this week to have been awarded £240 by the Holme Valley Lions, from their hard-earned Santa Sleigh fundraising efforts over Christmas.
Louise and Kate, 2 of our volunteers, attended the Lions’ charities’ night to bid for this funding, to pay for 3 planned visits by the “Feeling Good Theatre Group”. This is a group of Leeds-based actors, all over 50, who perform with great humour and intelligence on various themes related to ageing. We last saw them when they performed a series of very entertaining sketches warning of ‘distraction crime’ (doorstep and phone scams).
The shows they are to put on for us this year are as follows, all at 1pm at the Holmfirth Methodist Church Hall. Anyone interested in coming who does not normally attend our Holmfirth groups is most welcome, space allowing. Please ring Louise on 681008 to reserve a seat.
‘Active Ageing’ ~ Friday May 18th (warning: involves Lycra!)
‘Benchmark’ ~ Friday 7th Sept (reminiscences of people sharing a park bench)
‘Christmas Capers’ ~ Friday December 7th (speaks for itself!)
