Members and staff at St Georges Day CentreAge UK Shropshire Telford & Wrekin’s day centre in St Georges, Telford received a boost recently when it was awarded a grant by their local Parish Council.

'We applied for the grant because our members, as well as enjoying the weekly entertainment at the day centre, also enjoy the chance to go on trips out, as this is often the only time many of them have a chance to leave their homes safely, due to poor mobility,’ said Terry Abbott, Treasurer at the St Georges Day Centre.

'We are delighted to have received the £100 grant because this will enable us to fund more trips and pay for transport in a specially adapted minibus.'

If you’d like to find out more about our OPEL (Older People Enjoying Life) day centres call your local office on 01743 233 123 (Shropshire) or 01952 201 803 (Telford & Wrekin).
