Five Lamps are hoping to bring people together and reduce the risk of social isolation in Thornaby and surrounding areas, by hosting a lunch club every Tuesday lunch time.

The lunch club will allow the attendees to meet new people, socialise with friends and it will ultimately help bring the community together, whilst raising awareness of services and activities they can be involved in within the local community.

The lunch club will consist of a two course meal, followed by games and activities for the attendees.

The event is £4 to attend and will be held every Tuesday 12:30- 13:30 at South Thornaby Community Centre, TS17 9JG.

Each week there will be a new menu choice on offer and will include meals such as; mince dinners, shepherd’s pie, apple crumble and cheesecake.

Service Users of Five Lamps Home Care, who receive a lunch call on Tuesday afternoons, will be invited to attend the clubs free of charge. Five Lamps will also help arrange free transport for anyone who is finding it difficult to access the clubs but would like to attend.

The lunch club has now been open for three weeks and of one of the attendees has said:

“I really enjoy the lunch club and I have made new friends already”

If you would be interested in attending the lunch club or would like to find out more information please contact the Home Care office on 01642 753517. Booking is essential.
