Henna has a weekly over 50’s club. Here our beneficiaries meet up and
enjoy each other’s company. We also have a range of other organisations
that come in and spread awareness in regards to different health/social
issues that our beneficiaries face on a daily basis.
This is one of Henna’s oldest and most successful services. The session is
held every Monday between 1.00pm – 3.00pm at the Abbey Community Centre.
They meet on a regular basis to discuss social/cultural issues, health
issues and participate in outings and arts & craft activities.
A quarterly calendar of activities and events is produced with
consultation with the members, who suggest what activities they would like
to do. Participation in this group helps reduce isolation as it allows
the members to come together and socialise with each other at the same
time as learning new skills. The group promotes the building of support
networks and community cohesion.
