Dukinfield Center Eagerly Awaits Award of the Year – Quest Media Network

The Together Center in Dukinfield is shaping up to be busy as it will welcome people through its doors again in 2022.

Not only does the centre, at Loxley House on Birch Lane, run workshops, sessions, games and events for locals, but they also provide a number of free home-cooked meals to families in the local community during 12 weeks.

Meals can be delivered or eaten at Together Cafe.

The Together Center itself is an inclusive charity providing opportunities for families and local communities in Tameside.

Center staff encourage residents to get involved and hope people will join in the many activities they have planned over the coming months.

Some of these activities include events for seniors.

Center director Leanne Bold said: “As people get older, they often find themselves spending more time alone. Being alone can make older people more vulnerable to loneliness and social isolation, which will also affect their health and well-being.

“To help address this issue locally, The Together Center is offering a variety of free and meaningful support services and workshops throughout the winter months.

“Our amazing volunteers will be leading inclusive peer support workshops each week, providing the opportunity to make new friendships. »

There will be Talking Teacup Bingo every Wednesday from 1-2pm, with free lunch at noon and Crafty Corner every Thursday from 11am-noon, again with free lunch at noon.

Leanne added, “For participants who may not be able to attend our sessions and/or the center for various reasons – health and wellness, those returning from hospital stays and/or should- we suffer further national lockdowns – a ‘Craft-at ‘Home’ pack will be delivered each week along with the free hot meal.

“Participating in the workshops is not essential, you can of course simply enjoy a meal offered by us!”
