VINNIE'S DROP IN

Every Tuesday from

11am – 2pm

Vinnies, our free lunch time drop in, supported by local food suppliers through FareShare, now serves a healthy three-course meal to around 90 people per week. 

“It was nice to sit down and be served and eat my meal with a proper knife and fork and drink my tea out of a proper cup rather than plastic. Little things make a difference.”

Activities

We hold fitness, dance, bowling and bingo activities for people with physical and mental disabilities and their carers, have a number of fitness sessions for older people and host an art therapy charity (Chilli Studios) for people with mental health issues.

Parties and Events

We have a wonderful function room and meeting rooms for hire. All funds raised from room hire contribute to the work of the Centre.
