Caistor cares launches coffee mornings with help from Acis

Caistor cares picture

Caistor Cares, the voluntary organisation offering friendship and support for people over the age of 60, has launched free coffee mornings every Monday.

The organisation already offers befriending through home visits to a number of people in Caistor but it was felt that a weekly social event would add to this service.

We provided the group the space in Caistor free of charge at Drakes Court to host the coffee mornings.

This follows the enormous success of the parties that it has held in the Town Hall. These included one to launch Caistor Cares and to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday last year, a Christmas party and another this summer to mark the first anniversary of the organisation. Around 100 people attended each of these which included a tea and entertainment from various local groups.

The first coffee morning on 11th September coincided with a huge rainstorm but a good number of people including many Acis customers turned out to enjoy the friendship that was on offer. Chris Robey, Chair of Caistor Cares welcomed everyone to the first event, saying how delighted he was to see so many people there.

Debbie Clubley, our Area Service Manager, said: “We are quite proud of it if am honest as talking to some of the residents they have commented on how much they are enjoying the gatherings. Making a difference once a week really does matter.”

The coffee mornings are being held every Monday morning at Drakes Court, next to Southdale flats from 10.00 – 11.00 am. Everyone over 60 is welcome to these drop in sessions and there is no need to book a place.
