We warmly welcome you to join us for friendship, fun and fundraising. We have a wide range of activities which includes our Interest Groups who meet weekly, bi-monthly or monthly depending on the activity and our monthly General Meetings with guest speakers and other events. Within these activities we incorporate fundraising for our local charity which is chosen annually by our members.
The best way to get to know other members and develop new skills and interests is to join one or more of our interest groups. Everyone is welcome to participate whether you are a novice or have some experience of the activity. These activities may change depending on the interests of current members. Anyone is able to suggest ideas for future activities. For example we have just had a morning at an Outdoor Gym in a local park which was followed by an impromptu Tai Chi session. Will we have more such sessions? Watch this space!
Monthly meetings with entertaining, thought-provoking speakers and other events take place in Northwood at St John's United Reformed Church, Hallowell Road, Northwood, Middlesex, HA6 1DN. These meetings are usually held on the first Thursday of each month from September through to June, doors open at 9.30am. The meetings for the 2018/19 season are as follows.
Each year we select a local charity and raise funds to help their work. In the past we have raised money for, amongst others, the Mount Vernon Cancer Centre Charitable Trust, the Michael Sobell Hospice and the RNIB Sunshine House School all of which are based in Northwood. These funds are raised at various club events and activities throughout the year.
This year our charity is ORCHYD, a charity based in Ruislip which provides an annual residential holiday for children between 8 and 12 years of age with disabilities. The aim is to produce an unforgettable ten days holiday for the children with the added benefit that this can allow parents to spend time with their other children and give them the attention they also deserve.
