If you live in Dore & Totley and are looking for local activities, this is the place for you

PKW Dore & Totley

Small grants for local groups

Does your local group in Totley provide activities for older people? Or are you looking to expand your activities to include older people? If so, apply to Age UK Sheffield for a grant of up to £500 and the money could be with you by October.

The activity could range from coffee mornings to lunch clubs, from nature walks to indoor bowls. As long as your group is based in the local area and helps to get older people out of the house and involved with others, you can apply.

Age UK Sheffield is working with local community partners to expand opportunities for older people, supported by funding from Sheffield City Council.

To download a funding application form, click on the link at the bottom of this page. Or phone us on (0114) 250 2850 and we’ll send one out to you. If you apply by the end of August, your application will be considered by the grants panel in September.

Jogging memories

Has England’s World Cup excitement stirred some sporting memories for you? Whether it be the 1966 or 1986 World Cup campaigns, Olympic or Wimbledon highlights from yesteryear, or your own triumphs or disasters on the pitch or in the sports hall, come and tell us about them at our fortnightly Sporting Memories group at Totley Library.

The group meets on Thursdays from 10.00-12.00 at the Library and is currently recruiting for new members. Earlier this year they even had a visit to the National Football Museum in Preston! If you’re interested, e-mail:

Other activities

We're also running a weekly fitness class for older people, focusing on strength, balance and flexibility - it's every Monday from 2.00-3.00 at the Totley United Reformed Church, with tea and coffee until 3.30. And there's table tennis at Bradway Community Hall, every Friday from 7.00-9.00. No need to book for either session, just turn up and join in!
