The completely volunteer led project needs less than £2000 to run per year yet hundreds of people of all ages and abilities benefit from the social activity. The great initiative also addresses social isolation – an issue which affects so many local older residents, especially those living in rural Dorset.
Brian, 94 one of the volunteers who runs the group explained:
If it was not for the funding we get through the Foundation we would all probably be sitting at home, thinking – I don’t get out as much as I used to!
He met his partner Margaret, the lady who originally started the started the group, though the dance events.
Join them at the Allendale Centre in Wimborne the first Wednesday of every month from 2:30 pm.
