Belmont Healthcare Extends Support for our Wednesday Afternoon Club

Published on 01 March 2024 05:17 PM

We are delighted that local care provider, Belmont Healthcare, have decided to extend their monthly donation towards the entertainment at our Wednesday Afternoon Club.

Since March 2023, Belmont Healthcare has been a proud supporter of the Wednesday Afternoon Club, a weekly social gathering organised by Age UK Solihull at Moseley Cricket Club on Streetsbrook Road, Shirley. The club serves as a lifeline for older Solihull residents who live alone with no family or other support nearby. It offers companionship, refreshments, and activities on a weekly basis, as well as entertainment in the form of a singer or speaker once a month.

Belmont Healthcare, who already have a partnership with Moseley Cricket Club where the afternoon club is held, began to make donations to cover the cost of the monthly entertainment in March last year, planning to continue until December.

Recognising the ongoing need for entertaining and social activities for local older people, Belmont Healthcare is pleased to announce the extension of their monthly support for an additional six months, until June 2024.

Andrea Vinten, Head of Communications for the Belmont Healthcare group says, "We are honoured to continue our support for Age UK Solihull's Wednesday Afternoon Club. At Belmont Healthcare we are committed to supporting initiatives that promote social inclusion and well-being among older adults in the Solihull community. We are proud to play a part in enhancing the quality of life for older individuals and fostering meaningful connections and experiences."

Emma Hunter, Clubs and Activities Coordinator at Age UK Solihull, adds, “We are so grateful for Belmont Healthcare’s ongoing support of our Wednesday Afternoon Club. Our members rely on the Wednesday Afternoon Club for social interaction and support. They look forward to our monthly entertainment, and Belmont Healthcare’s monthly contributions have made a significant positive difference to the lives of older Solihull residents, helping to combat loneliness and foster a sense of belonging in the local community. We are delighted that they have decided to continue their generous support.”
