Published on 22 March 2019 04:26 PM
The Humphrey Booth Day Centre has re-opened after a substantial refurbishment.
The centre has been closed since the start of the year to enable the alterations to take place. The project was jointly funded by the Trustees and Distributors of Booth Charities and Age UK Salford.
It has seen the heating system upgraded, increasing the number of accessible toilets and personal care facilities and refurbishing the lounge and activities room.
A re-opening ceremony was held on Friday 15th March. Barbara Griffin MBE, Chair of the Distributors of Booth Charities and the Ceremonial Mayor of the City of Salford, Councillor Ronnie Wilson officially re-opened the Centre. The Mayoress, Pat Wilson, Sheila Jones, Chief Executive to the Distributors of Booth Charities were also in attendance.
Ken Whittick, the Chair of the Board of Trustees, Age UK Salford welcomed everyone to the centre and thanked a long list of people for their contributions to the successful completion of the project.
This included the Trustees and Distributors of Booth Charities, the architects Warburton Associates and the principal contractor, ABM (Lancashire). Thanks were also extended to Debbie Knight, Extra Care Housing Manager at Moore's House which provided the day care service whilst the building was completed with minimal disruption.
There were special thanks to the dedicated team at the Humphrey Booth Day centre and manager Natalie Covington-Davies who ensured the centre was fully prepared for closure and re-opening and the smooth running of the interim service.
The day centre makes a unique contribution to the wellbeing of all the service users, the volunteers and the staff and everyone is more than excited to have it back open.
