Valentine's Crafts at Teams and Bensham Community Care

The attendees of the Teams and Bensham Community Care centre have been getting ready for Valentine's Day by creating lovely flower and heart decorations.


Our lunch club assistant, Karen, is a skilled florist, and with funding from the Co-op Community Fund, we have been able to offer a range of creative activities this year and will continue to do so throughout 2020.

Our charity provides lunch clubs every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at our warm, welcoming and accessible day centre on Bolam Street, Teams. 

Our attendees have a freshly cooked, traditional two course meal, refreshments and plenty of activities such as indoor sports, daily quizzes, raffles, arts and crafts, bingo, celebrations and much more. 

The lunch clubs are ideal for anyone aged over 65 that would like to meet new friends, enjoy a hot meal in the company of others, and we care for many people with a range of disabilities, mobility problems, health conditions and memory loss. 

To take the hassle out of travelling to and from our centre, we have accessible, door to door minibus transport too for all of our members that live in the local area.
