The Orrell Trust’s Memory Cafe is heading to Bootle (starting 25th January)

The Orrell Trust is launching a Memory Café later this month to help support people living dementia or memory loss and their carers’.

The group will enable people who are living in similar circumstances to meet on a regular basis to take part in gentle exercise, games, sing-alongs, arts and crafts and memory box workshops.

As Sefton begins its Year of Friendship, groups like this are a great way to provide social interaction and the chance to make new friends.

The group will begin Friday, January 25 and will run on the last Friday of every month from 10am-12pm at St John and St James Church and Community Centre, Bailey Drive, Bootle.

The Orrell Trust also runs a number of other Over 55’s projects:

  • The Wednesday Club (every Wednesday 1.45pm-3.45pm)
    A weekly group to meet new friends, take part in gentle exercise, learn new skills and most importantly have fun!
  • Soup in a Basket (the last Thursday of the month 12pm-2pm)
    A monthly luncheon club where you can enjoy homemade soup, sandwiches and cake, socialise with friends and play traditional board games.
  • Bootle Buddies befriending service
    This project supports people living in Bootle. Volunteers can visit you at home offering a friendly ear and chat, or support you to get out and about.

All projects are delivered from St John & St James Church and Community Centre, 71 Bailey Drive, Bootle, L20 6EX.
