Our Men’s club meet once a month with a handful of male members and volunteers and
go to a local pub,The Feathers in Merstham. Transport is provided and the members
really enjoy it as an opportunity to relax and socialise over a drink.
Our core service is One to One Befriending, where we match a Volunteer with a Member
for ongoing support and friendship. Befriending is the basis from which the Scheme
started originally and it embodies everything the Scheme stands for. One to One Volunteers
offer friendship to older people who are isolated, possibly housebound and who often
feel socially excluded. The areas we cover are; Merstham, Redhill, Reigate, Horley
and surrounding areas.
Coffee morning - Our monthly coffee mornings are at different venues each month.
These could be at a volunteers home, a garden centre or a village hall, for a couple
of hours where you can catch up with your friends or make new ones over a hot drink
and a slice of cake. Transport is provided for this activity.
We have three day clubs, one in Redhill Methodist Church and one in Regents Hall,
Horley every Wednesday and on Monday mornings at Portland House, Merstham. Every
week there is a different activity which has been arranged by LAH staff - anything
from Bingo, quizzes, craft sessions, exercise or a guest speaker. Lunch will be
provided at both the Redhill and Horley Day Clubs (Transport provided when possible).
Ladies that do Lunch
Ladies That Do Lunch is a monthly outing on a Friday. The ladies are collected by
volunteers and taken to a pub where they enjoy a leisurely lunch, chat and then taken
