Here is a lovely comment we received from one of our satisfied learners David Warden

"I have been taking lessons with Age UK for quite a while now and have to congratulate the organisation with the way in which it provides for people of more mature years. In particular the courses I have attended which you have been involved with. You almost get a hug when you enter the building - with the office staff downstairs giving you a smile when you walk through the doors. Then the welcome we get from your good self. 

As I have said before - you are without doubt one of the best tutors I have ever had on a course - and I have attended a lot over the years.  You put everybody at ease and make sure that everyone can follow your instructions. The proof of this is in the centre page spread of the Sunderland Echo of a couple of weeks ago.

I hope from a personal point of view that courses concerning Photo Renovation etc., will continue and I will still pay for them as they are extremely good value for money. I learnt a while ago about life long learning - and you and Age UK are providing just that for those people - like me that aren’t ready yet for the slippers and hearth. Keep up the excellent work. I would be grateful if you could pass this up the line to your superiors." 

Ideas for future courses: We always welcome ideas for new courses and activities. If you have any suggestions for new activities you'd like us to introduce, please speak to the ActivAge staff.

Our Courses and Activites are supported by: Sunderland City Council Family Adult and Community Learning, Education & Skills Funding Agency, European Social Fund, Raich Carter Sports Centre and Online Centres Network.
