Charity launches community friendship club

A West Midlands charity is launching a new weekly social group, aiming to bring members of the local community together.

The Beacon Monday Club will offer a friendly and welcoming place for over-50s to meet new people.

Pete Moodie, community engagement officer for Beacon, said: “The centre at Sedgley boasts some of the best facilities in the area, including a modern and spacious 80-seat restaurant and a lovely coffee bar. We are looking forward to sharing the space with people from around the neighbourhood.

“The new Monday club will run from 2pm-4pm every week, except Bank Holidays, starting from 2nd March. Those attending will be able to browse the charity shop, call into the coffee bar for refreshments, and enjoy quizzes, entertainment or just meet other local people.

“With spring on its way, the new Beacon Monday Club will be a great place to make new friends, enjoy a laugh and have a cup of tea and a chat.

Anyone interested can join the first club on Monday 2nd March. For more information call Pete Moodie on 01902 880111 or email .

Beacon helps people with sight loss in the West Midlands live fuller and more independent lives by offering them the finest facilities and support, from providing advice to helping find permanent accommodation in Wolverhampton.
